Oh, Let’s Just Strip Search Everyone. 2

After all, the concept of human dignity and privacy has nothing to do with anything, does it?

The Transportation Security Administration said yesterday that Boston’s Logan International Airport is among the airports slated to receive a controversial scanning machine that can detect substances hidden under clothing, potentially thwarting terrorist attacks like the near-disaster on a Detroit-bound flight on Christmas Day.

Meanwhile, back in reality.

    IF I were to fly (& that’s a very big if) I would much rather stand in front of a screen, than have someone’s hands all over me. That, I couldn’t take.

    And being in a plane that some nutcase has brought down with explosives hidden in the crotch area, would be a serious bummer as well.

    The question is, given that his parents had reported him as a danger, he wasn’t flagged more vigorously by TSA.

    It’s not like they weren’t warned, for Pete’s sake.
