Hurrying up to wait at Little Rock airport

A not-so-happy traveler used a cell phone to send this photo of the security line at midday at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport. Commentary:

Another 40 minute line at midday. 2 x-ray machines, 1 body scanner & 1 id checker

1 of the worst airports in USA

I'm not ready to blame the airport. But tales of longer waits to clear Little Rock airport security have gone beyond anecdotal to received wisdom. The issue has come up before the airport commission and has been discussed in newspaper articles and among travelers. I don't know the cause or solution. But until somebody can show me otherwise, I tend to blame the new full body scanners. They take more time to pass through, they seem to trigger a warning more often and the resulting pat-down consumes time. I noticed in O'Hare recently that the full body imaging machine wasn't being used during a morning crush I passed through. Coincidental? Maybe. But a good thing, too.
