Update: here's a great summary of the backlash generated in the wake of this issue. You're welcome.
If you're a believer in personal freedom, read this and send the author your message of support.
I've been through one of the new whole-body scanners at Logan airport. It was either that or enjoy a handjob from a 300-lb TSA agent/bagboy. Have you heard about this? TSA agents now cup your meat as part of the patdown process.
Folks, most mariners travel using one-way tickets bought on short notice. This means 100% "additional screening."
Anyhow, if you're on the fence about clicking above, the author refused to go through the whole body scanner, opting for the metal detector and pat-down. He was informed that the frisky agent was going to check his oil, so to speak, and very politely refused, questioning the crossing of a line between a personal search and sexual assault.
Very awesome. Proving, again, that the government will take our freedoms away only when we allow them to do so.
