TSA agents are instructing [passengers] to remove their snacks and other food items from their carry-ons and place them in those ubiquitous plastic bins for separate screening.Ho! We actually have a name of a person from the TSA instead of the usual, "The TSA says..."
It's not part of agency's standard policy, according to TSA spokesman Mike England[.]
[The] "recommendation" appears to be gaining steam and moving rapidly into the territory of de-facto protocol[.]
"De-facto protocol"?!?!? The TSA is nothing but de-facto protocol.
What will the TSA do next...search your liver?
