AMEN! They talked about pre-screening years ago, but again, no action taken. I'd certainly be happy. I just returned from Japan, and they took about 5 minutes per person, and this was just a carry-on baggage check and waling through a metal detector. I'd hate to think how long it would take if one had to stand in the whole body scanner!
