Airports go on footwear patrol

Airports go on footwear patrol
Holiday travelers now facing checks of shoes

Quote:
The Federal Aviation Administration on Sunday ordered U.S. airlines and airports to be more vigilant in detecting passengers boarding planes with explosives in their shoes. The FAA order follows a similar one issued Dec. 11 warning that hijackers might try to smuggle weapons in their footwear, and it poses a challenge for U.S. airports.
In true american tradition, we start closing this security hole only after we nearly face another tragedy. I wonder if we'll ever learn.
