I think that in this situation we propose, I wouldn't have a choice, if I absolutely needed to get my family out of the country, then yes everyone
would have to join the Ben Dover club, if the last four bombers had hidden the explosives on five year old , then I can understand why authorities
would want to check my son. He doesn't like being examined at the doctors office either, but I have to stand there and watch him get upset because we
have to do it, if there was a magical way to get everyone's personal doctor to accompany them on trips to perform all the examinations, would people
still be so uneasy about the exam ? I don't know.
As flying off to sunny places is too remote a possibility for me to entertain right now, I have no worries. But if people just want to be patted
down and be done with it, Iam afraid those times are gone forever.
The whole Idea of a scanner was to give people some sense of dignity at the airport, just as we trust x-ray techs at the doctors office, we have to
be able to trust the people doing it at the airports, perhaps ex health care workers could man the machines or there could be an automatic 25 year
prison sentence for removing or storing an image, but it sounds like some people don't want either the scan or the excessive searches, so perhaps the
consumer marketplace will take over and we will all win, separate flights for people who choose the excessive search and ones that get just the pat
down, heck, smokers could have their own plane too, Otherwise what other option do you have besides not flying ?? Just exactly what do you propose
until sniffer technology catches up with the threat?
