Most expensive theater in the world

Saw this over the holidays, but saved it since discussing TSA during the season of Christ's birth just didn't seem appropriate...
Just in time for the holiday travel season,Vanity Fair’s Charles C. Mann took a trip through airport security with security expert Bruce Schneier. Mann used a fake boarding pass that he printed at home with a little bit of Photoshopping and some coaching from Schneier; it worked.
In fact, there are only three security measures that are effective, and they’re all already in place. They are “locking and reinforcing the cockpit doors, so terrorists can’t break in, positive baggage matching” — ensuring that people can’t put luggage on planes, and then not board them — “and teaching the passengers to fight back. The rest is security theater.”
...and man, are those theater tickets pricey!
