Good News for Flying Seniors

And you thought the TSA didn't have a heart.

Yesterday, John Pistole, the Administrator for the agency, announced during a speech he was making at the National Press Club, that those over the age of 75 would no longer be required to remove their shoes during the security screening process. The only exception would be if the shoes set off the metal detector.

Its a move to allow agents to concentrate on those travelers who pose a greater threat, and follows a similar move allowing those 12-and-under to stay shod during screenings.
