Forget the lines. Federalizing transportation security was a mistake from the start. The government should set standards, and the airports comply. Works in countless other industries.

Now we have 55,000+ fat, lazy unionized federal bureaucrats, who will soon demand early retirement because of their “hazardous duty.”
