NPR's David Molpus reports on how frequent business fliers are coping with the added strains of air travel since the September terrorist attacks. Getting through airport security takes longer, and family members tend to be more worried than before. Some sales and service personnel are choosing to drive, if their destinations aren't too far. Teleconferencing is an alternative, but it's no substitute for direct personal contact.
