Smooth sailing

    Tom MacDonald is at PHL this morning to report on holiday travel in the wake of the full-body scanner controversy.

     

    Tom reports: The first wave of morning holiday travelers have come through philadelphia international airport with few problems.

    Travelers have arrived early to deal with newly imposed security by the TSA saying having some patience goes a long way.  Security officials are only randomly using the full body scanner at the airport opting for ther most part to use the conventional metal detector.

    One member of a group urging people to shun the scanner came through the airport calling on people to opt for enhanced pat downs in protest.

    Tom will have mroe later on 91FM.
