TSA screeners at Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport were apparently too busy checking out the neighborhood junk to notice

gun." Recent tests show that screeners miss most of this stuff. Are we feeling safe yet?

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
