The other side of the Theatre is the TSA. Another fear-mongering bunch. So much money wasted on this and doing little but turning everyone into suspects. The new scanners don't work well at finding things, that are ones stomach, and on a side.

Would it not be easier, and cheaper to use a time-tested method of metal detectors and every ones favorite sniffing dogs.

Since recently the FBI(?) had busted a group of people for smuggling 50lbs of coke on to a plane, by using a 'secret tunnel. The arrest involved baggage handlers and members of the TSA.

So this is truly a don't pay attention to the man behind the curtain moment.
