Friday/ ‘How Airport Security is Killing Us’

I was reading this Bloomberg Businessweek article with the provocative headline at the airport on Thursday night.  Read it here !   From the article – ‘To make flying as dangerous as using a car, a four-plane disaster on the scale of 9/11 would have to occur every month, according to analysis published in the American Scientist.  People switching from air to road transportation in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks led to an increase of 242 driving fatalities per month – which means a lot more people died on the roads as an indirect result of 9/11 than died from being on the planes on that terrible day.
