For the past several years I’ve traveled on average 60K+ miles in the air. So, I have had a variety of experiences in airports around the globe. Today, flying back from Denver to Baltimore I was reminded of one of the inconsistencies I find in the process of going through security. I unpacked, removed, and separated the usual suspects–laptop, cell phone, shoes. But when I went through the metal detector, I set off the alarm. Turns out, this time my belt buckle or my watch were too much. Mind you, these same two items have gone through many airports in the past, including on the trip out to Denver, without drawing any attention.
Boy, I definitely feel safer now!
