Good afternoon and thank you for this article-which i read and noted- I thought I had already signed and commented on this- VERY SCARY- now we add teddy bears to list of things we can not take on airplanes -on trains- tell that to your kids when they are crying because they do not have their teddy bear to sleep with- what next- it takes an 11 year old 6th grade kid to figure it out- WOW - the next generation will really excel in computer science- sincerely KAY M.

I look at my grandchildren and nieces an marvel at what appears to be innate knowledge of today's electronics. I am smart enough to be able to turn on my personal Communications device, ie phone.
