And this final note -- is the era of the oh-so-intimate airport pat-down finally coming to an end? Perhaps.
In the future. Maybe a distant future.
The Department of Homeland Security has asked technology companies to come up with a hand-held scanner that could replace the personal pat-down.
It's gotta weigh less than five pounds and tell the difference between a pacemaker and an explosive device. And do its work within 15 seconds.
Could someone please, please design this?
