Air security news...

WASHINGTON -- The federal government is opening close-in parking lots at the country's biggest airports that have been off-limits since September 11, 2001 because of worries about car bombs.
Federal officials also will change the way air travelers are screened after they pass through security checkpoints over the next few weeks, checking them only at randomly selected gates, said Robert Johnson, spokesman for the Transportation Security Administration.

It's about time they opened up the parking (at least at Hartsfield). That was getting pretty ridiculous.

I wonder how quickly it will take effect (at Hartsfield, I mean).

I don't know but it can't be soon enough. I wonder if they'll ever let non ticketed folks go back to the concourses again. The current setup is a massive clusterfuck. If they don't allow it, that will pose some new challenges in future airport terminal design.

Have you noticed they've also quit asking the "very important security questions" at check in?
- Did you pack your bags yourself?
- Did any stranger ask you to carry any items onboard?
(Or something like that...)
