Speaking of 9/11

20 years anniversary of 9/11 day this year. Obviously many of its legacies are still with us, but it's also interesting how something can dominate politics completely for 5 years and a bit and then just sort of... fade away.

One thing which strikes me a lot these days is how much airline travel has changed "back." Sure there are the dumb TSA things like the liquid ban, but I'm still conditioned from that era when if you mouthed off to a flight attendant, or pulled your camera out at immigration control (I saw this happen), you were going to spend some time in a room with some pissed off members of law enforcement. Not really the case anymore. The extra "discipline" is gone.
