Pat Down or Scanner?

It’s almost like “paper or plastic” nowadays, the airport security controversy of pat down or scanner.

I have flown over 100,000 miles this year. In the past 6 weeks I have traveled by air every week, and I have gone through security at the airports in

  • Madison, Wisconsin
  • Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • New York JFK
  • San Diego, California
  • Albany, New York
  • Chicago, Illinois

and that’s just in the last 6 weeks or so.

Not once was I patted down. I have been in scanners a few times, maybe once or twice. I have not noticed anything different in the last few months compared to the last 9 years, since September 11, 2001.

I don’t  know what the fuss is all about. Do the media have nothing real to report on?

    Yep, nothing to report about. It is the dead time of journalism. The latest turkey recipes? How people are buying bargains for Christmas (that was a NYTimes top story yesterday!).
