No scan and grope at La Guardia

Dean Ericson, who traveled this week from New York City to Minnesota, writes:

It’s cold in Minneapolis. Not below zero cold, just 14 degrees cold, but windy and with a light, fine snow blowing down. Perfect. No scan and grope at LaGuardia, just the usual magnetometer. The two guys in front of me looked to be terrorists from central casting; swarthy young men with closely cropped heads and scraggly beards toting backpacks. As their stuff went through the machine the black woman seated at the monitor was in an animated conversation with another black woman TSA agent and distracting the monitor lady. I knew if it was you you’d have said, “Excuse me, Miss, but I hope you’re not being distracted from your important duty,” but I said nothing because my people, the Minnesota Nice, are reluctant to make a scene. I should have said something though because now it’s bugging me.
