The WaPo's Media Notes column pointed out an interesting little airport-security goodie that I'd never have spotted, as it was on page E3 (not that it matters, as I read the Web version).
Airport screeners will no longer ask passengers whether they've kept a close eye on their luggage or if anyone has asked them to carry something on board the aircraft. The questions are being phased out becasue they wast 20 seconds per passenger, according to Transportation Security Administration head James Loy.
"Over the years they have lost whatever original value they contributed and can now be safely eliminated," Loy said.
I'm still not flying this Thanksgiving, though.
