Today, during the peak of the holiday traveling season, workers employed by the Transportation Security Administration, the agency charged with trying to keep terrorists off airplanes, will endure a great deal of criticism and short tempers from Americans who don’t like the new measures effected by the TSA, including full body scanners and pat-down searches for passengers who don’t want to be scanned. Like most, we wish there were an easier way. We recall fondly -- young people won’t have a clue about this -- the days when Americans simply walked onto airplanes with nothing more than a ticket.
