Just an update for those of you who haven't been to the airport or flew since 911. The ticket-counter line at Logan for Delta was bad, but not horrendous (it took an hour).

At Logan they make you take off your belt, and take laptops out of their cases before they go through the x-ray. But other than that, and a lot of police (which I'm happy to see, to be honest), things appear to be pretty normal on the surface. I personally feel safer now flying, because of all the heightened awareness.

The plane I was on was pretty full, I'd say about 70%. The deli-grab-bag snack was the same as always.

Just thought some people might like to know.
