This triggered a memory, and that produced the following letter to the editor:
Laura Billings' column in today's paper reminded me of a trip I took recently. I'd gone to a renaissance faire in the morning, and by the time I headed for the airport, I didn't have time to change. I went in my period clothing. In that outfit, the only thing I have on below the waist is tights and open-framework shoes.
I had no trouble at all getting through security, as it was obvious I had nothing to hide.
Maybe I should travel like that more often.
