The concession: Kids keep their shoes on

A mom writes of her interaction with airport security and having to remove her 14-month-old's shoes. I can't say I admire her when she so blindly accepts the "need" for TSA and absurd procedures, but only draws a line (sorta) when they become too absurd. But, anyway, she points out that part of the special new procedures at Boston Logan, where SPOT is being tested, is that kids under 12 won't have to remove their shoes.

Be gracious to your overlords, peons, for they have listened and are so compassionate that your youngest children can wear their shoes.
