Smelly feet at Fla. airport may prompt change
Friday, March 12, 2010

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Something stinks at Palm Beach International Airport.

And apparently it's the no-shoes rule through security gates.

The county airports director said at an advisory board meeting Wednesday security personnel "are complaining of odor" in the area and requested a change.

Flight delays often mean a shorter window than the airport's regular 4:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. hours provide, meaning new carpet might be a better more feasible than a good shampooing.

The county is already replacing much of the terminal tile and carpet, but nothing was immediately promised for the stinky security area.

Damp carpet + mold spores + warm temperatures = smelly mold growth on the carpet. Solution? Remove carpet and put down tile. Perhaps, while you're at it have TSA stop with the shoe circus.
