Bill Fisher mentioned in NY Times

Bill Fisher's due diligence has paid off with a little publicity. Here's the relevant passage:

While it is difficult to evaluate the overall performance of airport screeners, Bill Fisher, a former frequent flier who has cut back on his own travels, maintains an online list at Travel Underground of reports about screeners who have been arrested, airport security breaches and incidents involving mistreatment of passengers by agents.
Mr. Fisher said he started the list to help answer his own question about airport security: “Is it really as bad as it seems or are people overreacting?”
A year later, he thinks passengers’ concerns are not exaggerated, and have not gone away.
“The fact that these stories still surface routinely is probably a good indication that this issue hasn’t died down as much as anticipated,” he said.
Congrats, Bill!
