By the time I get to Phoenix (i better be getting in shape), or, why is that airport security guy snickering?

The Sky Harbor airport in Phoenix is piloting testing out a new passenger security scanner system with a device that can actually see through your clothes. I don’t obsess about my skinny arms and legs and lack of er, trunk (when I lived in Brooklyn, the kids called me bookoo smash – because I looked like something had smashed my ‘bookoo), but it has to be more than a little embarrassing knowing that government employees are eyeballing the true state of my external nature.

The good news is that they’ll probably beg me to hurry on through. On the other hand, the Halle Berry’s of this world may need that extra-special surveillance JUST to make sure that everything is a-ok.

    My first thought on seeing that story was “wow, this is gonna be a big treat for the scanning people.”

    I’ve been to airports. There aren’t a whole lot of sets of clothes I wanna see through.
