Because we've all had enough politics, let's talk about air travel today. As I wrote a few days ago, I was a lucky recipient of the new "enhanced" pat-down procedure, a few days ago at LAX. I'll put it this way: I was expecting the guy to at least offer to buy me dinner afterwards. Anyway, this is top of mind because of a notable column by Joe Sharkey in this morning's New York Times. It speaks directly to what is often the problem with airline security: The lack of standard application. So...give it a read, see what you think. We are preparing for nine straight hours of election night coverage. Something new this year: No Leno, no Fallon--just us. Late night. Maybe all night. We'll see. I hope you can join us tonight, beginning with Nightly News--coming back on the air for prime time and for the long haul.
