"The pattern of government regulations is familiar. After something bad happens, the public clamors for action. Politicians solemnly swear that Bill XYZ will ensure that a similar thing will never happen again. Whether Bill XYZ measurably decreases the likelihood of a repeat of the incident is rarely challenged. Those who do are accused of indifference or complacency. So far, the policies and procedures implemented after 9/11 appear to conform to this familiar pattern." (09/09/11)
