Just in time for the holiday travel season... Today at 10:00 a.m. CT, Midmorning talks about the vulnerable skies:

A recent government report suggests that explosive substances can still be smuggled past screeners and onto the airlines. Midmorning examines the challenge of balancing safety and efficiency in airline travel.
