While I'm sure we're all in agreement that the TSA procedures for security both suck, and many of them border on the retarded, I'm torn on this one. I'm certainly willing to pay an app fee of $85 to not deal with as much B.S. as I currently do, but the question that gives me pause is should I have to?
"As TSA continues to move away from a one-size-fits-all approach to transportation security, we are looking for more opportunities to provide the most effective security in the most efficient way possible," TSA Administrator John Pistole said in the news release announcing the expansion.
That quote stuck out for me, as I believe that they should be trying to make their processes more effective, and streamline them to be less intrusive for the traveller. The one-size fits all approach hasn't worked so far. It seems like there isn't a month that goes by that I don't end up hearing about some wheelchair bound invalid getting a full body cavity search or some toddler being permanently traumatized by being strip-searched by a shady looking TSA rep (ok, exaggerations but you get my meaning).
Will you sign up for the service?
