    Don't you love it when the government gets all parental and tells you it knows best?

    I jst have a problem believing anyone who tells me one thing when common sense, and the experts, tell me something else.

    While there is a constiutional right to travel (in particular to cross state lines) there is not specific right to the type of travel. What the airlines have done is allow the goverment to be the bad guy in all this, doing a task they should be doing themselves. Since it would then be a private service, you would have no real reason for complaint.

    For people who dont like scanners i suggest car, bus, train or dirgible.

    repeated radiation from these scanners can not be healthy for anyone that has to travel a lot. Heard Pilots were told to avoid them or something of the sort?

    Has anyone ever read the book the Puppet Masters?

    The premise of this book was that an alien species took control of people's minds by latching onto their spine and turning them into puppets set out to destroy the human race.

    One of the outcomes of this was that people pretty much had to go naked to prove that they weren't terrorist puppets.

    Life is imitating art, folks.

    That would be kind of like boycotting toilet paper. Or the use of water.
