Thoughts from an airport

It's been a while since I blogged some airport tips. So here goes:

A) those full body scanners really look for everything. Do take off
all your accouterments. Or else you'll get padded down. I promise. And
get over the fact that someone is gonna see your boobs. Half the world
(thanks katy perry) are sharing them on sesame street.

B) do not wear pants that will fall down when you remove your belt.

C) do not crowd the boarding area. Its just lame. Board when you board.

D) do not put your handbag in the overhead compartment. I don't care
how tall or fat you are, your legroom should be compromised by your
own belongings. You do not get TWO items in the overhead.

E) luggage carts? Really people?

F) as the girl often in the middle at 5'2", I don't care how comfy it
is to sit with your legs akimbo, that is my leg room. Let me have it.

G) it is supremely uncool for airlines to charge for in flight direct
tv. Truly? That's just lame. Particulalry for hour-long flights.

"Advanced Imaging Technology" is a euphemism created to make people think they are getting "scanned." No one is getting "scanned" -- they are getting strip searched.

The fundamental privacy issue is whether our government has the right to make strip searches routine and mandatory.

There is no question that these machines violate the 4th Amendment.

There are also health issues. Researchers are already coming out saying that the machines aren't safe and could cause cancer. The flat ones (Rapiscan) use X-RAYS on Men, Women & Children, including pregnant women!
