FINALLY ó A great alternative to body scanners at airports . . .

The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners at the airports.

Itís a booth you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on you. They see this as a win-win for everyone, with none of this crap about racial profiling.

It also would eliminate the costs of a long and expensive trial. Justice would be swift. Case closed!

You're in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter an announcement comes over the PA system . . . "Attention standby passengers ó we now have a seat available on flight number 1234.

Shalom!"

Gotta hand it to the Israelis for ingenuity.

No problems here. Only wish it were real.

How many of us (back in the day), when toting our favorite cordura duffle bag to the airport, suddenly realized there may be a few dove&quail loads in a side pocket? Or a buck-knife? Or a handful of 22 rounds?

Nowadays, we wouldn't dream of making such a grave error, but I've come pretty darn close back when it wasn't that big of a deal. Heck, they'd probably just ask you to throw them out. Now, you probably would get a pair of matching bracelets, courtesy TSA.

I've actually been stopped a number of times based on the bomb swabs. When I am shooting photos at night in difficult neighborhoods, I generally carry a pistol in one of the pockets of my camera case. As a result, the camera case tests positive when it is checked.
