National Opt-Out Day

Our interests here are travel, not politics, yet the decisions of politicians and civil servants have led to a multitude of stories in the news media about the reaction to the "whole-body imaging scanners" coming into use at TSA checkpoints.

While one currently has the right to "opt out" of the radiation scanner, one then has to submit to a rather invasive personal frisk.

We've written about this issue here and here.

While we don't expect to be in an airport Wednesday, November 24, we'll be watching with interest as National Opt-Out Day occurs.
