TSA to Remove Scanners, Except Not

The good news is that the TSA is getting rid of its backscatter full-body scanners. The bad news is it will be replacing them with millimeter-length full-body scanners, which are similarly ineffective (would-be bombers can simply flatten their explosives into a pancake shape on their torso and go through undetected).

In other news, the TSA continues to hire people like Thomas Harkins. A former priest, Harkins was defrocked for sexually abusing two schoolgirls. He then went to work for the TSA. Fortunately, thanks to a promotion some years back, he is no longer patting down passengers.
