Canine explosives detection beats the crap out of the full-body scanner

from brasscheck tv...

yesterday at dulles, i opted out of the full-body scan and got patted down instead... i wanted to check out for myself what all the fuss was about... no biggie, as it turned out... the guy was very deferential and completely appropriate... basically, it wasn't much different from the pat-downs and wanding i've experienced the rare times i've set off the metal detector... maybe they've taken the firestorm of publicity to heart and are backing off... otoh, i'm not a hot younger woman - or guy - so maybe the deferential part has to do with my mature, grandfatherly appearance...
