"Hands on: TSA tests 'enhanced patdowns'" - The Tipping Point?

This USA Today article presents even-handed (pun intended) coverage of the controversy over the so-called enhanced patdowns, including links to other articles.

We've been traveling long enough to realize that the words enhanced and enhancement, as (ab)used in the travel industry, most often refers euphemistically to something that will either cost more or diminish service.

The question is simply how much we, the traveling public, are prepared to tolerate in the name of "security." Could this be a tipping point?
