..."More than a dozen years after 9/11, you'd think people's awareness would be raised," TSA official Lisa Farbstein said. "but they continue to bring firearms and weapons to checkpoints every day. the numbers just keep going up." ( The Boston Globe )
"people who thought they were getting in the line to go through the [security] checkpoint found they were in the line to go check in [with the airline], although they didn't need to because they already had their boarding pass" Farbstein said
