Slow Security

Dan Goldwasser Boston

It’s been nearly 4 years after 9/11, and you would think that by now the security check-in lines at airports would have found a happy pace at which they flow. In fact, I haven’t really had any issues with security taking forever, so imagine my complete shock when I got to LAX this morning at 5:45am, and found myself standing in a security line for almost an hour. What the hell?

At least the flight was pretty uneventful; took a little over 5 hours. I watched Iron Giant with commentary on my laptop, and then capped it off with the Ricky Gervais stand-up comedy video, “Animals”. They don’t serve food on the flight anymore…. man, I’m hungry.
