Invaded at the airport, full-body scanners

Invaded at the airport

Look, up in the sky -- that's your privacy taking off on the next flight.

I've warned you about the humbling new full-body scanners used in airports -- the ones that reveal every intimate detail of your body to low-wage TSA workers. The feds claim that the images are viewed remotely, and no one can match your privates to your face.

Let's call that what it is: Just one more lie from Uncle Sam.

A Miami airport worker made the mistake of walking through one of those things, and for a full year had to tolerate jokes about his penis size from a colleague.

Then, he did what any guy would do: Police say he finally beat the spit out of his co-worker. And can you really blame him? I'm just surprised he put up with it for a year before he cracked.

I wish I could say penis jokes are the worst part of this invasive new security system, but they're not. These intimate images are created by radioactive blasts... and no matter what anyone tells you, there is NO safe level of exposure to radiation.

If you can afford the gas prices, do yourself and your pride a favor: drive.

Staying home,

William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
