Heroes for Today: Sully, again

Hero pilot and airline safety expert Capt. Chesley Sullenberger weighs in on the US-TSA’s infamous “porno-scanners”. He doesn’t like them, feeling that they’re merely “expedient” and don’t help air crews do their job–protecting passengers–at all.

There are other reasons to question their use, too: Scientists say they’re not safe, as they bombard the human skin with enough radiation to cause cancer. I don’t know about you, but as a natural redhead, one who NEVER lies around on beaches or tanning beds (it would be, among other things, a waste of my time anyway), I think that’s something to be more than a little concerned about. Enough that I’d want to slather myself head to toe in lead paint if I ever had to pass through one of those privacy-invading horrors.

Isn’t it ironic that those things actually make flying LESS safe, all things considered?
