Felt up at the airport

The uproar about more invasive security checks at airports doesn't seem to be going away.

You do wonder where it ends. If feel-ups are justified, won't the logical next step after they fail to catch someone with dangerous contraband be body cavity searches? Then nude flying?

I'd like to see a comprehensive dollar amount on the cost in security measures — and remember, airports are just a tip of the homeland security iceberg — since 9/11. The terrorists won.

PS — Thanks to Garrick for a reference to a fascinating essay at Nate Silver's blog on the hidden costs of increased security, particularly reduced travel.
