    i don't understand the reactions to this.  i mean, i get the hypocrisy thing, but we should be doing nothing but cheering paul on here.  TSA theater is intrusive bullshit that does absolutely nothing to help anybody.

    Two different scanners gave different results? It must be a secret government conspiracy, says the conservative member of that same government. Couldn't be differences in calibration, or the likelihood that the machines might kinda suck.

    ...We're going to get a formal government inquiry because a sitting senator, as opposed to any other member of the vast American public that has to put up with this crap on a daily basis, was momentarily delayed at an airport.

    yer goddamn right it's worthwhile to investigate why one machine goes off and another doesn't, especially within the same airport, where one would expect the machines to be properly calibrated.

    if the stupid things are setting off false positives, that's wasting everyone's time and possibly taxpayers' money.

    i really don't get why everybody isn't fully behind this.
