    What is FT? I forget. There's a site where "some guy" :D with the same handle as you has started such a thread, but five hours later nobody has responded. That place is dead, man. We need to find some shovels & bury it.

    They also claimed the scanners weren't going to be the primary search method, and look how fast that lie turned over. Almost as fast as the claim that the TSA employees are "trained professionals..."

    Full-perverted-monty. Needless to say I needed some phernergan after witnessing this needless sexual assault.

    One of the few days I didnt have my camera on me, the video would have been helpful. Im only laughing because if not I'd probably want to beat the snot out of a smurf or twenty.

    Twitter is now full of people complaining about long security lines. I sent them apologies. ;)

    Not everyone. People going through the WTMD seem to get a pass, which seems odd especially since TSA has told us that non-metal explosives are the greatest threat to American freedom ever! After all, freedom isn't fee so everyone should be getting one, but they don't.

    I love how in the LA Times article Mike has linked in the parent thread on this the TSA is quoted as saying something along the lines of these machines aren't the end all be all and we never said they were. Except they did say that, and obviously they're junk.

    clear confirmation that the tried-and-true WTMD is the superior screening apparatus

    I'm still waiting for most of the hoi polloi to get this. Just had dinner with friends the other night who were still, still, clueless about what's going on. The usual hyper-educated, well-traveled, well-read, well-informed, blah blah blah people. One of them's even a lawyer. And she sees no problem with the TSA's procedures.

    I really can't wrap my head around this (expletive deleted).

    Lines at MIA very long today. D concourse using both WTMD and MMW. Watched 2 through MMW and neither got a pat down.

    E concourse suspiciously had all MMW turned off. :) Nice!
