Airport screening is a small sacrifice

Thank you Jules Witcover for your commentary "'Sacrifice' in the airport screening line" (Nov. 24). I keep wondering "What is wrong with people?" when I hear or read of furor over airport security measures. I remember being patted down in a private room in the Munich airport years ago on my first business trip abroad. The Red Brigade threat and the murder of Jewish athletes at the Olympics were some of the terrors of those days. I was grateful for the caution exerted for my safety.

Terrorism exists, and security measures are necessary. Get over it, people. Show some responsibility for the gift of United States citizenship. Thankfully our country does not have to warn its people to travel in protective convoys within the country as Mexico has just done.
