Scenes like this one are ridiculous.
Thank goodness, the Transportation Security Administration has come to its senses when it comes to children and pat-downs. From now on, TSA personnel will try to avoid intrusive pat-downs of children. Children may not understand or find the whole matter very scary.
We took a road trip earlier this year so that we wouldn’t have to weather security issues with two children in tow. I don’t know if the change in policy will change my mind, but it is a step in the right direction.
