While flying out of Spokane this week, I noticed a sign never seen before at the aiport security line. It showed a big 1937 with these words: "If you are 75 or older, you can keep your shoes and light jacket on."
It sent the message that 1) if you are older, you don't have the strength to be a terrorist or 2) you take too damn long to take on and off those shoes and we need to keep the lines moving, old man. 3) we respect our elders and removing shoes is kind of disrespectful.
