explosives detection

This Sunday after Thanksgiving, Ben Franklin’s vision of America finds its way to these pages. The search for an artificial dog nose continues and a doggy version of AirBnB is thrown a $6 million bone.


This is a simple reprint of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) press release with a short commentary up front. It seems that TSA is now moving down a better track than installing untested and circumventable whole-body scanners. This effort searches for explosives and the method is non-invasive, protecting dignity. That’s as long as TSA doesn’t decide to have us jam out hands in our pants like their counterparts in Canada have known to require.
