"Opt Out" Thanksgiving

Some of you may be aware of this already, but the Thanksgiving travel weekend is a time when travel activists and regular Joes choose to “Opt Out” en masse at the airport.

Opt Out of what? The TSA Nude-O-Scopes a/k/a the full body scanners. The thought is that if enough people opt out it will cause havoc at the airport and TSA will remove this equipment. I do favor grassroots protests but do I think this will work?  I think if the stars and moon align people could miss their flights, but I don’t think it will lead to the removal of the equipment.

Will I opt out today? Yes, but I opt out every time I fly. If TSA wants to see my junk, just ask…no photos please.

Are you opting out?
