Congress to Test Air Screening Program... I wonder if it will clasify my mom as yellow.
I find this very interesting since I recently took my mother to the airport for a trip to California. While checking in, the majority of passengers had their bags put on the conveyor belt and they went about their way. But when my mom's bag was put on, the belt suddenly stopped and the lady behind the counter started typing away on her console. Then she said, "You're all ready to go, just take your bag over there"... and she directed us to the special detection equipment they've setup for suspicious bags. My 65 year old mother had apparently been mistaken for a terrorist. With security precautions like those, I'm sure we're all in great hands.
