With the busiest travel period of the year just a few anxious days away, BWI Marshall Airport is in an all-out push to burnish its reputation as the "easy come, easy go" airport. Wednesday morning, federal security officials added BWI to a pre-screening program that could speed the check-in process for millions of passengers. And before the week is out, officials expect to reopen the airport's longest runway after a $40 million upgrade and repaving, a race against the holiday clock that was complicated by Hurricane Sandy.

If there is one area of human behavior into which legislatures should not have to intrude, it would surely be breast feeding. Nature's brilliant plan for nourishing infants that also helps support tiny immune systems is regarded by medical experts as superior to any substitute method and thus widely encouraged. Yet more than 40 states, including Maryland, have enacted statutes to affirmatively assert a mother's right to nurse her child in public or at least to exempt her from criminal prosecution under indecency laws.

Delta Air Lines is on the move at BWI-Marshall Airport, the latest in a series of changes as the airport prepares for an expansion project in 2012. Beginning next week, Delta will shift its operations from Concourse C to Concourse D. As you may remember, AirTran was most recently based at Concourse D but last month it shifted to be closer to owner Southwest Airlines in the A/B Concourse. Yes, it's musical chairs, folks. With a little alphabet soup thrown in. But when the music stops sometime in 2013, BWI expects to have created a more passenger-friendly airport that's easier to navigate.

The FAA shutdown doesn't seem to be getting much coverage - probably because the media attention span has all been sucked into the vortex that is - or was - the debt ceiling crisis. But as of this moment, the shutdown continues and it's possible that it will go on into September since Congress is on the verge of recess. They're basically going home without finishing their work. When's the last time you got to do that? In the meantime, the shutdown is costing the government something like $30 million a day. By the time Congress gets back from R&R, the total will likely top an estimated $1.2 billion.

The new year has gotten off to a rocky start for air travelers. Since Christmas Day's attempted terrorist attack - I know, it seems like years - passengers have had to contend with terminal shutdowns, pat-downs, power downs and government showdowns. So much so that a big snowstorm that just causes delays and cancellations would probably be a relief. Here's a quick recap of travel news from the first few days of 2010. The CEO of Delta Air Lines squarely put the blame for the bomb plot aboard Flight 253 (operated by Northwest, which is owned by Delta)
