Most security is set up for volume screening, so you shouldn't have any worries, unless you get picked for a random or you fit a profile. Most of the time you would walk through a metal detector (emptying all metals and small items into a tray- go to airline web page to get a list of unacceptable items) or you will walk through the magnetic imagery scanner and your silhouette appears like an x-ray on the screen in the next room. Quick and painless. Considering what had just happened today Oct 29, security- I am sure is a little tighter. If you do get picked for a manual search, it's nothing personal, you are taken to another room and there is always 2 security people with you for liability reasons. Just be polite and cooperative because they get crap all day long and they are only doing as instructed per protocol for their protection as well as yours. Its the out of norm or bucking the system that brings on further procedures and there was no Bible involved in designing it. Everybody is treated the same via procedure. This is one of those "Give Pontius Pilate what is his" (in all forms). Or take the bus.
There once was a time we did not worry, That was before the modern Sailing Ship or Air Travel. I mean even around 2000-2002, the whole chem-trail thing also included diluted inoculation form of cold viruses, that were sprayed over cities, because our Gov also realized we needed to learn more of what would happen if the U.S. were attacked by a chem / bio weapon. By tracking the cold/sickness wave through the disease reporting center, they could see how fast our transportation industry and tourist movements would effect the nation during a disease control crisis.
We are living in High Tech times and a fast pace environment. What would you do to prevent the collapse? And if its too much, people have to be involved and speak up, but don't cause yourself trouble. In your grand-kid's time it will be going 500 times faster. The Biggest thing to teach is always be grounded from and in- where you came from. Its the only thing that keeps the boat from capsizing.
