    Good. Maybe with his high profile and money to afford the legal expenses we can finally get this nonsense to be declared unconstitutional. My 70 year old aunt also has a hip replacement and must go through the same hassle as well when she flies. She always demands a private screening. This is nothing but theater.

    He could go thru the naked scanner instead of getting a pat down.

    Its a publicity stunt, much like Charlie Sheen entering rehab.

    Its only meant to draw attention, not actually change anything.

    im sure he can prove he was.....and he raises a good point......if he goes through onetime and establishes that HE has a Titanium hip.....and he is a frequent flyer.....that should be in the TSA files so when he flies again they know this....end of story....

    Tough break for Jesse

    Give people with titanium hips a free pass and terrorists will recruit people with titanium hips or grandmas or anyone else you don't check

    The naked body scanners bathe you in radiation. You really think that's a viable option?

    I opt out of the body scanners when I travel.

    From what I understand you get more radiation when flying than you do going through the scanner.

    I don't really have a problem with the scanners but I do wish the hell they'd quit making me take off my shoes. :evil:
