In MSP I didn't even need to take my jacket off.

Here's my Gripe...why does someone who has done a background check, fingerprinting, interview, etc...have to be randomly selected? when a Gold medallion with no background check is considered more secure? Obviously, I did not get selected, left the skypriority lane, when to check point 6, stood in the regular line, and still got through faster. Rant over.
1. Because it is random. Those using GE are just as likely to be selected to go through the regular line as DM/PM, etc.

2. 6 million people, really? What else about your rant is an overexaggeration?
