An New New Approach to Body Scanners

Finally, A Great Alternative To Body Scanners At Airports. 

FROM THE PATRIOT – A Reprint

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

It’s 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 —  you will retain your privacy and with none of the whining about racial profiling

It also would eliminate the costs of long and expensive trials. Justice would be swift.

You’re in the DFW airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion.

Shortly thereafter an announcement comes over the PA system: “Attention standby passengers — we now have a seat available on flight number ____.

 Shalom Y’all.”

 

Quote of the Day: Martha Graham

Martha Graham and Bertram Ross

No matter how bitter things become for me, personally economically, I would never allow myself to be destroyed from within.  I would sustain all kinds of disappointment without ceasing to believe, to hope, to love.  I would never yield to the temptation of pessimism, the ease of despair or withdrawal.

It was as if I took an inner vow

Martha Graham

NEVER TO ALLOW GRADUALLY THE TRAFFIC TO SMOTHER WITH NOISE AND FOG the flowing of the spirit.

Quote of the Day: Dune

Kyle MacLachlan as Paul Atreides

Fear is the mind-killer.  Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.  I will face my fear.  I will permit it to pass over me and through me.  And when it has gone past me I will turn to see fear’s path.  Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.  Only I will remain.

Quote of the Day: Commitment

Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.  It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions.  And the actions which speak louder than the words.  It is making the time when there is none.  Coming through time after time after time, year after year.  Commitment is the stuff character is made of; the power to change the face of things.  It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.
