As frustration grows, airports consider ditching TSA

As frustration grows, airports consider ditching TSA: "Every spring, private security officers at San Francisco International Airport compete in a workplace 'March Madness'-style tournament for cash prizes, some as high as $1,500.

The games: finding illegal items and explosives in carry-on bags; successfully picking locks on difficult-to-open luggage; and spotting a would-be terrorist (in this case Covenant Aviation Security's president, Gerald L. Berry) on security videos.

'The bonuses are pretty handsome,' Berry said. 'We have to be good - equal or better than the feds. So we work at it, and we incentivize.'"
