Let's face it, we're going to get regular installments of fear until we give up everything that makes America great. The Bush administration figured out that a significant percentage of the population would give up lots of freedom in return for manufactured security, and the Obama administration's continuing to run with that. If you're afraid, you're malleable. You'll cheer on the revocation of what we used to call "inalienable rights" from American citizens. You'll wave at the nice policemen in their new military gear and heavy weapons, even as they point them at you, because you'll feel safer. You'll clap as your politicians ignore you and instead give the best government money can buy to the rich people that paid for the election of those politicians, because that's the new American Dream.

While the airport no doubt bristles with security, people can tend to get a little jumpy if they've had a brush with death.  No doubt, though, that mistaking toothpaste for something more dangerous is likely to leave them a little totally crestfallen.   It may result them in losing their coveted security plaque.
