5:53 am
just having more visible presence around these airports, not necessarily, changing the screening process per say. >> yes, just looking behind you, people walking about, i don't get the sense that anyone is panic there right now. so it seems like otherwise normal morning, if i'm correct? >> yes. maureen, i think the other thing you have to add to that, especially in the dc area, specially this airport, you have lot of seasoned travelers that do this kind of thing all the time. they certainly have been aware of terror scares before, and they just generally go about their business, of course, you know, unseen here, the individuals that have chose canceled flights, so on, but no indication that was happening on large scale. >> dug luzader live at reagan national airport, thank you for. that will wisdom talking back up to you, i guess as you're seeing more sign of the times, the times we live in right now, where secure it is he paramount all around? >> right. time 5:53. four largest cell phone carriers are waiving fees for pe
