This really is a serious dilemma that, because of some policy procedures that were not followed, has taken on a life of its own.

I really have no particular sympathy for the ‘don’t touch my junk guy, but the TSA people were clearly out of bounds with the searches they were doing on children.

At the same time we want to know we are safe going on board an aircraft.

The X-rays from the scanner are said to be safe, with a number of dissenting point of views on this.

And the worst part is that many are now saying the scanners would not even protect us based on the last potential bomber incident.

An even the probing pat down now seems to be coming into question as to its effectiveness.

On explosion on an aircraft and no one will be questioning the means of checking to keep us safe.

And we do expect our governments to protect us.

So the question is, in a free society, how much intrusion are we ready to accept. And do we care fi the occasional bomber gets through as a price for freedom.

Modern dilemma’s have changed our concepts of personal intrusion already. The question is how far do we let it go…And what are the consequences.

I really would love your comments.

I will willingly walk through a scanner. But after millions of dollars invested I expect the system to work.

And if it can be proved to be effective to the nth degree, I have no problem in saying go through it or take a train or boat.

But my security should not be jeopordized by those who want none of anything…But still want to be secure when they fly.

Post your thoughts please.
