The Public Squalor of Airport Security

 

 

A dearth of TSA screeners has caused enormous lines at airport security checkpoints.
An hour-long security line at LaGuardia Airport. I was in it.

 

The bottom line is that adding 800 new screeners still leaves the U.S. air transportation system with 5,000 fewer screeners than a few years ago.  This summer, meanwhile, airlines expect a record number of passengers.
