So would a shorter (at or just above) the knee skirt, made of standard travel knit, be bulky?

Let's just say I go through one of the two kinds of machines - why would I be pulled for a secondary,...

Unfortunately (and I'm assuming you're asking this question for real), you want to be realistic. Have a valid form of ID with you (driver's license or passport, read about the pro's and con's of...

Reporters at LAX all day, showing lines with empty/unused/roped off backscatter machines. Very sparse or no use (and fewer flyers than two years ago, about the same as last year).

At LAX, it was mostly metal detectors (or entirely metal detectors today). I can't seem to keep straight whether ATL used them or not.

What in heck did this guy have in his pants/groin area that required such close inspection? They were doing a secondary, I'm guessing, and wouldn't let him go because...the screen felt something? ...

The TSA PR campaign is focusing on the safety issue.

Reporters are apparently reluctant (or too disinterested/untrained) to ask other questions about the NoS.

For example, even if safe, is it...

I keep hearing on local Los Angeles area news that the backscatter machines are not being used today, so that opting out isn't necessary. Everyone is going through metal detectors, just like the...

TSA is in the Executive Branch, not the Legislative Branch.

Yes, they will allow one person to stand back with all the carry-ons. We do it the same way. I go through while DH has everything. He puts it in bins, refuses to be hurried (they cannot make you...

Cool You all saw the pizza recruitment strategy, right?

I didn't see a thread devoted to the new campaign by the TSA to recruit employees. Apparently, pizza delivery customers are the target pool (along with, I suppose, pizza parlor workers who will see...

I think being stopped to be reminded that our car registration would expire in 3 days was an unnecessary stop. At 11 pm on a dark and deserted road.

The sticker was back home in California, and...

Yes, it seems to me that there are way too many TSO's at each gate, especially as compared to security protocols in other countries. The problems I've seen or heard about all involved several TSO's,...
