Mr. Schneier has been one of the most objective, realistic, and sane people there are when it comes to matters of security, encryption, and stuff like evoting.

I do like his comment that we're more secure in electronic voting if the code isn't secret. Lovely lucid comment!

I recently had a chance to plug his Beyond Fear to someone after a discussion of airline security and "security". Not only is he (as Greg London put it) "objective, realistic, and sane" but he also writes nice clear explanations that you can give to people to help them see new sides of the problem.

Just so, all round. Bruce is into real security.
