Avoid These Airports

 Posted on November 15, 2010 in Uncategorized

Don't like the idea of choosing between a full-body scanner and an "enhanced patdown" by a TSA thug? You don't have to avoid flying; you just have to avoid flying out of the airports that use full-body scanners (list below from as of 16 September 2010; check back there before you make your reservations-there are more every day).

Americans aren't yet ready to take up arms and start executing TSA mallcops en masse; few of us will even stop flying, even at the cost of being sexually assaulted (h/t Simple Justice); most of us are content, as long as there's no math involved, to be unquestioningly compliant. But if enough of those who still must fly were to take our business elsewhere, eschewing airports with full-body scanners (and the airlines that fly out of those airports) for those without, some of the people who run this country (by which I mean the corporations) might feel enough of a financial sting to put a leash on TSA.

(Observe: no full-body scanners at JFK or LGA, or at EWR yet. Hmm. But hellish third-world backwater Laredo has 'em, as do McAllen, Harlingen and Rochester. The point? We're probably not going to miss much right now by not flying out of body-scanner airports.)
