Great example ... Mail Tribune: Please 'handle with care' ...I have vivid recall of accompanying her on her last big travel experience — it was her 90th birthday celebration on the East Coast. We started the trip by going through airport security in San Francisco. She was frail, as well as hearing- and vision-impaired, and the boarding experience on that particular day was traumatic.It started when well-meaning (I just have to assume) uniformed security officials took away her metal cane — quite abruptly, I thought. Perhaps she didn't hear them ask her if they could do that. She was such an agreeable little person that if people said something to her she didn't hear or understand, she would usually just smile and nod.I didn't hear them ask her about the cane either, but maybe because, by then, they had oh-so-firmly advised me to stand "way back" from her. They did that with stop-sign hand signals accompanied by a warning not to raise my voice.Yes, I had raised my voice and, yes, I was agitated, especially when I saw little tears struggle down my mom's cheeks as she endured an all-body pat-down and imperative queries she probably couldn't hear....There's good news. In the spring of this year, the TSA said it was "rolling out more lenient security procedures for travelers age 75 and older." Their goal is apparently to create an easier and "less stressful" traveling experience. Good luck if you think TSA's two-digit IQ's are capable of any meaningful improvement.
