BUT, I mention that mostly because I want to thank Ticker for having left the comment below, in italics, on my Burqa's/TSA post....it's a comment that absolutely cracked me up and I wanted to make sure you all saw it!;
Simply have a booth, similar to what the bomb squad boys use to disarm bombs but, you know, make it look nice for the airport. Every person has to enter the booth, the door closes, if there is no bomb on the person the door opens and the person boards the plane. If the person is carrying a bomb there will be a soft muffled "boom", the cleaning crew will be called an an announcement will go out..."There is an available seat on Flight 0000."
Now how simple is that! No profiling, no discrimination, no pat downs and no body scans. You'd think someone in the "gubermint" could come up with something that simple, but then again, Naw, never happen.
"Naw...never happen.." But it sure is funny, and it sure would solve the problem with very little fuss 'n muss (unless you're on Airport Clean-up!) Yes, I know I sound heartless but I love humor like this and I had to post it! Thanks, Ticker!
