Is the hysteria over, or has it just begun?

NYTimes: Welcome to a new type of post-9/11 (non-)law enforcement: High-Altitude Rambos.

"One of the marshals pulled a gun and brandished it at the passengers. The marshals loudly demanded that all passengers remain in their seats, and remain still. They barked a series of orders. No one should stand for any reason. Arms and legs should not extend into the aisles. No one should try to visit the restroom. The message could not have been clearer: anyone who disobeyed the marshals was in danger of being shot."
