Flying Is Not What It Used to Be

Keep in mind that when I started flying there were no metal detectors. Then idiots started hijacking flights to Cuba.  Not out of solidarity with Castro, but often hoping to get closer enough to kill him.  This is why he was willing to work with the U.S. on extradition of hijackers. 

There used to be lockers beyond the metal detectors.   Then an insane guy known as the ABC bomber started putting bombs in lockers.  First at the Airport, then a Bus station.  I do not remember C. 

At some point the poor oppressed Palestinians stayed hijacking planes and holding passengers hostage and sometimes killing them. 

You could at one time walk right up the gate to welcome arriving friends and bid adieu to friends.  Then 9/11.
