TSA Guards Winking at You

Accept the full-body scan and enjoy your trip. Safely.

by Bob Kerstetter

Security guards at airports are moral humans, like you. These days all they see in their scanners are stick images, plus any weapons.

The scan is not a violation of your freedoms or your constitutional rights or your human rights. It is the U.S. government trying to protect you from terrorists.

Is the scan dangerous?

Is the sun dangerous? Is the surf dangerous? Are sonograms dangerous?

Maybe. But likely not in small amounts—the same as sun, surf and sonograms.

Lighten up. Travel is a good thing. Smiling cures all types of ills. Move on.

Accept the full-body scan and enjoy your trip. Safely.
