A silver lining to our cancelled trip to California is, I suppose, that we didn't have to get full-body-scanned or groped.
I admit I got a good laugh out of this college kid, who made the news when he took it a step further than removing his shoes and belt - he stripped down to his speedo to walk through security. "This is a safety precaution," he claimed. "Just making sure I don't have any trouble!"
While the video he made of his little protest is humorous, airport security certainly isn't something I want to deal with these days.
