...I see Pattie's granny pants? Have you seen this news story? "Security Scanner Can See Through Clothes" Hello. If I had a body that I was interested in displaying I wouldn't BE wearing clothes now would I? I'm a fairly easy going individual and I don't have a whole lot of hangups about nudity in general. I keep my body covered in layers of textile because, quite frankly, I don't figure anybody WANTS to see what's under there.
I realize that the events that unfolded on 9-11 changed our world. In many ways America lost her innocence that fateful day. Yes, I want to know that the government and airlines are doing everything in their power to assure the horrific events of that day never occur again. No, I don't want to sit on a plane wondering if the individual next to me has a bomb hidden in some unmentionable body cavity. (Ewwww!) But I'm not really convinced that it's time for Big Brother to stop simply watching us...and time for him to become a peeping Tom.
What do YOU think? Should we give up our right to the ultimate privacy of keeping our stretch marks and love handles literally "under wraps" in the interest of national safety? Or does the world grow a little madder with each passing day?
While you're pondering that one I think I'm going to go sort through my underwear drawer and toss the ones with the stretched out waistbands and split seams. You never know when I might need to take a sudden plane trip. (sigh)
