TSA's Suspicious Flyer's List Gets Bigger and Bigger
The list that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) keeps on "suspicious flyers" keeps getting bigger and bigger. For a short period if you showed up at the airport screeners station without identification the TSA would put you on a "suspicious flyers" list. Not to worry as you are only put on that list for a short 15 years. It just gets worse and worse. I flew out of Portland, Maine early on Tuesday morning about ten days ago. The security checkpoint line was the worst I had ever seen - it must have taken about 40 mins just to get to the screening checkpoint. Incredible. Read more about how you can get on the "TSA list" in the following article - "Fliers without ID placed on TSA list", USA Today, August 13, 2008.
