    ALPA calls for threat-based screening that "focuses on intent rather than on objects."
    (Meaning those objects we might sew into our bodies?):rolleyes:

    They're happy about alternative screening for pilots. They support risk-profiling.

    But what are the risk analysis measures for the Trust-Based Security System they'd like to see? When we approach the checkpoint would our credit scores light up so we can be sorted in a "rational" fashion? I know any logic or metric seems like an improvement, but we can probably expect the "intent" part to get lost with this group.

    And even for the past threats they're chasing, would it work? I will always remember the quiet couple, my well-dressed neighbors who drove a Jaguar, how they partied on the night of September 11th, and then just silently moved away.
