Three years ago, I blogged about the uproar when someone actually used a home printer to fake a boarding pass. I was dismayed that in the uproar, it was clear that this was news to lawmakers and the TSA. I wrote, "Only the computer illiterate will be surprised that the boarding passes you print out on your home printer can be faked. I don't expect members of Congress to be computer or technology experts, but even if their eyes and brains don't tell them this, don't any of them have smart, computer-savvy aids with a clue?"
Well, apparently they are close to Closing that Boarding-Pass Loophole.
Three years. A lifetime in government programs.
