Back From D.C.
One interesting event: on the flight from Chicago to D.C., TSA did an ID check when we boarded the plane--not just at security. I have never seen this done before, nor had other travelers with whom I spoke. This was not just a cursory check--they were carefully comparing the picture on the ID to the person, so not security theater. Admittedly, we're flying into D.C., but I have flown into D.C. before and not seen this done. I suspect that there is something going on at the moment that has them concerned.
