"There are no privacy issues when you're trying to be safe"

Posted By on 12.29.09 at 05:48 PM

O'Hare International Airport will get full passenger body-scanning equipment next year, perhaps as early as the first quarter, Chicago's aviation commissioner said today.

Not to fall for the slippery-slope fallacy, but I'm starting to fear that the future of air travel is going to look like the scene in Silence of the Lambs when Hannibal Lecter gets flown to meet the senator.

Update: Worth noting here that we're going on a year without a TSA director because the only thing more terrifying than terrorists is unions.
