I guess thats good if you think that checking ID actually solves anything. Personally I don't. The TSA checks, although thorough, fall in to the "Tony Blair" be seen to do something, rather than actually doing something. Yes, of course I know there have not been anymore attacks since 9/11, its just the 9/11 hijackers all had drivers licenses.
But then, if like me, they had less than a year on their visa/I94 entry permit, they wouldn't be able to get one in Texas at least. TEXAS, It's bigger than France!
