Sneaking through Airport Security

The “Beer Belly” cooler lets you sneak beer into football games...and airport security.

Jeffrey Goldberg is a national correspondent for the Atlantic. In the November issue, he argues that the airport security measures implemented after 9/11 do not work.

To prove it, he brought suspicious materials to O'Hare, LAX and other airports to see if he'd make it past the scanners and bag checkers. Most of the time, he did. Jerome asked him why he decided to try his luck.

(NOTE: Worldview called the Transportation Security Administration to get their response to Jeffrey Goldberg's story. We did not receive a response.)
