 Concerns are growing about long security lines at U.S. airports as the partial government shutdown drags into its 18th day. 

Hundreds of TSA workers have reportedly been calling out sick since Friday.  Eight-hundred-thousand government employees aren't getting paid during the shutdown but those involved in public safety and health are still required to show up for work.  One-quarter of the federal government is affected, including the Homeland Security and Justice departments.
