    Chicago Tribune: Annoyed by elite passengers with airport security line privileges?

    Isn't PreCheck driven by what elites the airline decides can particpate in the program? So what would really change, other than preventing a non-elite Joe Schmoe from walking up to the ticket counter, buying and "F" ticket & getting in the express lane?

    This seems like the worst of all worlds to me. It's taking away power from the airlines - who are probably trying to lessen the sting of TSA security for their frequent flyers, and giving more power to the TSA!! I haven't seen a PreCheck application, but please tell me, why does the TSA need more personal information about passengers? They already have watch lists and Secure Flight - are those things not working for them?

    Who knows? Maybe Nelson has an ulterior motive -- maybe he wants to give the TSA more power so that we'll all hate them more than we already do. Maybe he wants to turn frequent flyers into activists. More people will call their congress critters and when the congressional phones start ringing off the hook congress will have more cover to allow them to ditch the TSA. (hey, a girl can dream, can't she?) :)

    Keep in mind that it's election season. However, it does provide a window into his campaign's view on voter sentiment in his State.

    Window dressing. Nothing will change as long as people keep flying and keep putting up with this sh*t.
