11/18/2003 Archived Entry: ""Improved" airport body scanner"
YOU REMEMBER THOSE AIRPORT BODY SCANNERS? The ones that could detect your wallet, gun, medicine bottle, knife, keys, breasts, or penis through your clothes -- but that "didn't violate your privacy" because they didn't require actually patting you? Well, you'll be delighted to learn that those scanners are being improved. Now they "won't violate your privacy" because a computer will replace the naked image of you with a dummy image while still showing everything you're carrying under your clothes.
Whew. We can all feel much, much better now.
