Aside from a few signs, a bikini or two and a couple of kilts the “Opt Out” protest was pretty much ado about nothing.
First off, only 60 of America’s 450+ airports even have the scanners and the pat down procedure in place so if you didn’t fly out of one of them there was nothing to ‘opt out’ of.
The Pro opt-out folks are claiming success because of the publicity the event drew and I suppose that’s true but in actual fact it seems very few people opted out.
All in all a big yawn.
NOW can we get back to more important things?
