Security screening: Irritation, criticism of TSA grows

A week ago, I told you about my experience with TSA screening at PHL's Terminal D-E checkpoint, and also linked to a New York Times column on the full-body scanning or full patdowns of your body, your choice, now going on at most major airports. Today's Sharkey column and a companion news story on growing unhappiness on travelers' part about the screening process are on the same subject and speak for themselves. Read them and let us know what you think of airport security these days.
