TSA to consider making screening more humane?


That's what it sounds like upon reading Maureen O'Dowd's Stripped of Dignity editorial in today's New York Times. After railing about the various indignities and abusive searches in the news lately, she ends with John Pistole, the T.S.A. chief, saying "they are trying to move past a 'one-size-fits-all' program and implement a 'risk-based, intelligence-driven process' by the end of the year that would have more refined targeting. If passengers are willing to share the same information they give to airline frequent-flier programs, he said, maybe some day they will be able to 'keep their jacket on and their laptop in their briefcase and hang on to that unfinished bottle of water.'"

That'd be nice, wouldn't it?
