As a frequent traveler, I signed up for the TSA “pre-check” interview as soon as it was possible. I filled in forms, but the first available appointment was more than three months away. When the day finally arrived, I went to the airport and walked into a room full of well-armed men.
Paperwork was exchanged; photo and fingerprints were taken. Next, I was asked a few random questions about how often I travel and where. In less than 10 minutes, the meeting was over. “Is that all you need?” I commented innocently. “Yes,” the agent replied. “I’ve done research about you.”
