Starry Decisis: LAX Confidential

In the days before 9/11, the biggest hassle in airport travel was having to turn down the pleas of the old women in nurses costumes standing by the escalators. Now, after 9/11, the fake nurses are still there, but they move down the long security lines that line the curbs. In this age of strict airport regulation, it's surprising that airport solicitors and proselytizers didn't get the steel-toed boot a long time ago. Instead,...
