    Just got this from TUG member.

    First off, this type of "program" kind of scares me. I can see many of the kettles thinking that this is a simpler option, despite the ionizing radiation emitted from the Chertoff Cancer Containers @ BOS. They are not very educated on the risks of going through the scanner, so it must seem like a simpler option, as opposed to those of us that have to opt-out

    Secondly, unless something changed, I don't recall seeing that the porno scanners could scan our feet. If Pissy is so worried about shoe bombs, then why the (expletive deleted) are they allowing people to keep their shoes on?

    So much for the nude-o-scopes being necessary for security. It was the "shoe bomber' that started the shoe thing before the "underwear bomber" started the strip searches and grope-fests.

    TSA lies so often even they can't keep their stories straight.

    Seems that if they get enough "volunteers" to go through the scanners, it reduces complaints, reduces grope downs and makes the smurfs happier, not to have pi$$ed off passengers all day.
    Great for security!

    So just send a bunch of bad guys through with C4 taped to the bottom of their feet. Yep, deciding not to get on the ball with Explosive Trace Portals was a brilliant move. :rolleyes:

    Why do you suppose that no one else besides TSA does the shoe removal? It was never that much of a threat.
