Just flew back from the Dominican Republic (Punta Cana), I got randomly pulled for the extra screening. Just prior to boarding my carry on bag was checked very carefully, efficiently and quickly by some professional, yet polite and cheerful younger (25-35?) women. As was my pat-down. Yes, my balls were bounced a little.. I didn't mind at all. Watching them do the same to a family with a baby in a stroller, I was surprised and amazed at how differently it was from my seeing the same thing done in Atlanta or even Chattanooga. The attitude and environment of the people makes an incredible amount of difference. I still think the biggest difference is the caliber, selection and training of the people hired. We've seen the difference in many countries.. and Atlanta Airport seems to hit both extremes, randomly. I meet some very good people there, and a lot of "jobs program rejects".
