Get Hip to the Trip

January 16, 2002

Re "It's Just Hip When a Congressman Is Asked to Strip," Jan 11: Rep. John D. Dingell's encounter with the security screeners at Reagan National Airport brought to mind a similar encounter of mine. When I passed through a security gate, my surgically placed metallic hip implant set off the alarms. I advised the gate attendant of my then-recent surgery, to which he replied with the now-familiar, "Please take it out, put it in the basket and walk through the gate again."
