The TSA has made a great decision to expand PreCheck, the program that expedites airport security for pre-screened and paying customers. It signals a sophisticated, risk-based approach to security that will save everyone involved time and money.
Relief is in sight, ye weary travelers setting off to farflung parts of this sphere we call Earth: Screening lines at airports are about to get a lot speedier for travelers flying on international airlines now that the Transportation Security Administration has expanded its PreCheck program.
Dogs make great running, hiking, and walking companions: they (usually) go wherever you want, keep up a good pace, alert you to nearby squirrels, and don’t try to engage in any pesky conversations. So it’s understandable that people who run with their dogs found an ad for Pearl Izumi shoes that ran in Canada offensive. It shows a man performing cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on his dog, and implies that this is a good thing.
The program lets travelers who obtain Transportation Security Administration clearance avoid what have become the most annoying steps of post-9/11 screening: removing shoes, belt and coats.A program that lets preapproved air travelers zip through faster security lines will be expanded this year to 35 of the nation's largest airports, Transportation Security Administration officials announced Wednesday.
