On the road, #212

I haven't had to do much business traveling lately, so yesterday was my first time through airport security since the TSA installed those backscatter x-ray body scanners.

For someone of my size and physical configuration, removing my belt and raising my arms above my head is not a trivial consideration, and poses an ethical dilemma: do I wish to be a security risk or a flasher?

At least there's some consolation in knowing I ruined the lunch of some nebby scanner operator.

(I sat three rows from the back on the Southwest flight from Pittsburgh to Tampa. I like to think of it as first class for dyslexics.)
