Sam Adams. Edward Allen. John Anderson. Mikey Hicks. Allison Mosher. The members of this lineup have to go through additional security screening, can't print out boarding passes at home, can't check in curbside or at kiosks, and have to show up at the airport hours before fellow passengers in order to make their flight. That's because they all share a name with a known or suspected terrorist on the Selectee Watch List. The one other thing they have in common? None of them have hit puberty.
