When will people get it? Pre-Check doesn't work

Sigh. I've been writing about Pre-Check for almost two years, explaining again and again and again and again how it works, how it doesn't, and why it's a boondoggle. Yet people persist in pretending it's not.

Today we have yet another article about Pre-Check, detailing the convoluted odyssey of classical pianist Emanuel Ax, who must fly for work (unlike most people in the country). Though he belongs to Pre-Check, it doesn't help him. Just like it doesn't help tens of thousands of other people.

Still think that by ponying up protection money you'll be spared the TSA's scoping and groping? Then you haven't been paying attention. For the umpteenth time, Pre-Check doesn't guarantee anything.
