Terrorists, beware! If the onerous security measures added after 9/11 haven’t done enough to deter the next airline terrorist plot, the cramped seats, baggage fees, and recent airplane crashes surely have made it less inviting. Who wants to pay $15 to check a bag that will just get blown up anyway?
The Transportation Security Administration, however, isn’t taking any chances. Hot on the heels (removed, please, as you walk through the metal detector) of installing controversial full-body scanners at a number of U.S. airports, the Department of Homeland Security is evaluating a new device that supposedly senses hostile intentions in people.
