I know this is besides the point, but COOL GRAPHICS!

today, coming home from our pesach vacation, half of us were herded through the regular scanner; the others through the full body/naked picture type. then those people had to be patted down by hand - apparently the scanners can't figure out what a skirt zipper is! but good news - children under 12 no longer have to remove their shoes to go through security, and if you were born before 1937 (and you are traveling out of orlando florida, at least), you can keep both your shoes AND your light weight jacket on!

It's a debate about airport security. Bruce Schneier's closing statement, alone, is worth quoting in full. (I blogged about it FWIW.)

Grr... I refuse to fly to the US anymore... thanks to my cochlear implant, I can't pass through metal detectors which means I get patted down each time... In Canadian and Israeli airports, I had no problem... last time I flew to the States, I got submitted to this humiliating strip search and that was well before the new TSA regulations and naked scanners. What a farce!!

I just went through a scanner for the first time, in Kiev. I had no idea what I was stepping into until I was told to raise my arms, and by then it was too late to request a manual search. Thanks for spreading your good works to the rest of the world, TSA. :Þ

At least in Kiev, they didn't flip out on me when I had a little water left in my bottle.
