    Looking at today's hot topic........its that we are all required to undergo a full body scan or a "pat-down" before boarding a plane.

    Lets take a poll to see how we prefer to use the TSA security apparatus, we can either do all of us haphazardly, or the most probable terrorists thoroughly....like the Israelis....

    Yes by all means let's go to profiling.

    I'm sure the terrorists would never figure out how a person had to look and act to beat that.

    I agree. They haven't figured it out in Israel for more than 30 years.

    Israel has it down. It's only natural that our current leaders will never let Israel advise us on how to improve our security. This administration is run by unions.

    profiling is not just looking at who, but looking at behaviors.

    The Israelis don't just go "That person is an arab, lets target him." They look at males between 20 and 35, traveling alone, being uncommunicative and acting out in unusual ways. Such as arriving together and then separating but watching each other closely. People who are jumpy and nervous about folks sitting to near to them.

    what does not work is looking for guys in arab dress. there are lots of rational ways to profile, and lots of silly ways too.

    So we should learn the profile and apply it, but not let silly triumph over good sense
