Lose Your ID -- Head to the Front of the Line

Want to avoid those long lines at the airport metal detectors during your holiday travel?

Try losing your ID.

NPR reports on a small group of civil libertarians who are challenging TSA's rules that you have to show ID. They found out if you simply tell the screeners you lost your wallet, or left your drivers license in your checked luggage, you get moved to the front of the line.

Mind you, you'll get special attention -- more scanning, searching, and scrutiny in general.

But they've found it's quicker than waiting in line with the rest of the herd. (NPR)
