The TSA is getting it from all sides these days, as newspaper columnist Daniel Rubin points out. A new documentary called "Please Remove Your Shoes" blasts the agency for a bloated bureaucracy and reactionary policies that do little to increase security. But a book called "Skating on Stilts" takes a different view, arguing that privacy advocates have prevented the TSA from using technology and intelligence capabilities in a way that would reduce inconveniences for the vast majority of travelers. Rubin agrees with the latter view: "I'm willing to give up some privacy here -- as long as the information is used wisely," he writes.
