8. My wife was separated from our then 4-month-old daughter and 3-year-old son
and placed in a little glass booth while being "wanded," after the freaking underwire in her bra set off the metal detector. She was traveling with a babysitter, thank God, or I don't know what would've happened. Our son totally freaked out, but the TSA people wouldn't let him in--or my wife out--of the glass booth, and became very annoyed when she got agitated. I think the "not separating parents from kids" policy was put in place relatively recently. This was at MSP in 2008--and I'm not exaggerating or making it up.
