let's get naked and go to the airport

Actually, the order is reversed -- let's go to the airport and get naked. Because that's what a new scanning machine the Transportation Security Agency is now using in Phoenix essentially does. It can look through your clothes. And unlike those lame glasses you bought from that advertisement in your Batman comic book, this technology actually works.

Some obvious privacy concerns -- but they won't use it on everybody, apparently, only on those who would need to be subjected to an extensive pat-down. And it's the passenger's choice, so you can pick between being felt-up or stripped naked.

In any case, this may help TSA retain its security personnel at airports...
