Guess what? No taking off of shoes. No pulling computers out of their bags, no taking off of belts and jackets. No rapescan machines. All this announced as we all threaded through.

The atmosphere, in the security lines, seemed almost jolly. Not so much the passengers (preoccupied by their cell phone screens), but the Homeland Security guys. As if they were relieved not to have to act like assholes. YES!
