Congratulations. You've completely ignored the entire conversation to say something obvious about the TSA's role in general.

Thank you for your contribution.

I suppose you're the kind of person who replies to people discussing different games with something about using Linux and not playing games because they're stupid.

If an employer was loading guns at random, and paying you to point them at people and pull the trigger, could you just walk away? Or would you feel a responsibility to stop them?

That is what happened in this case. The TSA is NOT making sure everyone who goes onto a plane is not a terrorist, resulting in plane-guns that are randomly loaded, or not, with terrorists.

You want to just walk away and ignore the situation entirely.

I think, and my thoughts cross the barrier into the synapses of the machine - just as the good doctor intended.
But what I cannot shake, and what hints at things to come, is that thoughts cross back.
In my dreams the sensibility of the machine invades the periphery of my consciousness.
Dark. Rigid. Cold. Alien.
Evolution is at work here, but just what is evolving remains to be seen.
