Orange level travel alert is not scaring people

After about one week of having to adjust to Orange Level restrictions (nuisances), most everyone has adjusted to not being able to take drinks onboard a plane or bringing things on like liquids or gels, or chap stick, or make up. Even in the toughest airport, Washington, DC Reagan National Airport (because of the proximity to government sensitive areas), things are pretty much normal again. A poll was recently conducted after the latest terrorist scare and the question was, ” Are you very scared to travel/fly?” 23% of the respondents said yes. What is interesting to note is that that is the same identical percentage that responded the same way one year after the 9/11 terrorist attack. This means we are not letting scare tactics bother us the way they used to (at least in this case.).
