Today is generally acknowledged as the busiest travel day of the year. And, thankfully, I won't be out on the roadways nor schlepping through an airport in an attempt to get to Grandma's house for the holidays.
This heavy travel is spurring discussion on the latest security measures being employed at airports--notably the full-body scanners which are becoming more prevalent. I've used the screeners and have been patted down as a result. (Who knew that a quarter in a pants pocket would show up on the machine's screen?) As uncomfortable as it may be, I'll do whatever it takes to make my flight secure and safe. But, seriously, isn't there a better and more efficient way to process travelers through the needed security, e.g., some sort of pre-screening system for frequent travelers?
Good luck and safe travels to all my peeps who are out and about this extended holiday weekend.
