This just boggles the mind:
[DHS committee member] Jim Harper left his hotel early Thursday at 5:30 a.m. to give himself more than two hours to clear security at San Francisco International Airport. It wasn’t that he was worried the security line would be long, but because he accepted a dare from civil liberties rabble-rouser John Gilmore to test whether he could actually fly without showing identification.
[…] Harper told the identification checker he had no ID, and the attendant quickly wrote “No ID” with a red marker on his ticket and shunted him off to an extra screening line — generously allowing him to bypass the longer queue of card-carrying passengers.
[…] At 6:30 a.m., standing 50 yards away on the other side of the glass screen, Harper phoned to say he now had two hours to kill, having gotten through screening perhaps even faster than he would have if he’d shown ID.
Your skymiles may vary, but I’d venture to say this is news that we’ll hear more of as people test the system to see just how constitutional it is to require ID to travel, though I’d be willing to guess that more than a few folks won’t be as lucky as Mr. Harper.
