Now I can make the joke with even more confidence. Twice in a row at San Francisco airport I've been directed to the "TSA pre-check" line where they dispense with removing shoes, those damned quart bags for gels, and the "take off that coat and take out the computer" rule. I never applied for this status. It almost feels like realistic security, instead of the theater of fear.
I don't expect this at all airports, but the TSA claims to be expanding the system rapidly.
I wonder, is this program available to Muslims, Sikhs, Asian and other immigrant groups? I hope so.
