OP-ED: New TSA Body Scanners

What is with all the hype of the new TSA body scanners?  The body scanners have been around for several years now, and now just becoming main stream.  So they show an x-ray type image of the person being scanned.  This technology is not new.  My doctor’s office has this technology.

Now I understand people are concerned with privacy, and the chance of their body being shown.  Should we remind people that names are not associated with theses images. The TSA employee watching the screens are in separate rooms, far away from the screenee.  They don’t see your ID, boarding pass, or even security footage.

So to all the critics out there, what is a better solution?  Should we just allow people to keep blowing up planes?  What can be done?  Stop complaining about it, and give a better solution.
