TSA wants to double your security fee

The article says: "This time, it’s transportation security officials who want you to pay more.". It should say "This time, it’s transportation security officials who want you to pay THEM more."

Bah, another reason I refuse to fly.

It would be easier just to tell them to go ahead and take the i-pod from my suitcase.

/Haven't flown since 1996 and hope I never have to again.

Amen to that, Deb.

As someone who has flown a lot more than I'd like to in recent years - I'm not about to drive cross-country at our age - it is not for the faint of heart.

The only way to go is the way we went to London last year - business class. Special check in lines, take all the luggage you want (free), special speedy security lines, and that doesn't even begin to tell you the sybaritic delights of the flight.

And the best part (yes, it gets better) is that we did it all on airline miles and didn't pay a cent.

But when we came back through Heathrow and saw that the "more security conscious than us" Brits did NOT make anyone take their shoes off (not just business class, everyone) it proved yet again what BS the current system is.

I guess the groping doesn't come free anymore.
