I jumped on a fight to Vegas last year and spent 6 days in line just to get through security. That’s right. I said a “fight” to Vegas. I fought to get in the “short line,” as if there is any way to know the short line when they split you up to lunge towards the screening centers. People are cordial but pushy. That extra 30 seconds getting through the conga line means EVERYTHING, apparently. But my issue is shoes. Why take off shoes? It makes no sense. No other country makes you do this, and Israel, in particular, is far more subject to terrorist subversion. No hysterical measures in Israel. And those 6 ounces of fluids. Die, infidel! More on this next time, but I believe this is insane, an attempt to keep us cowering in fear for no reason. Who profits from this? Political Traveler – OUT!
