In the News As none other I know how problematic it is to discuss matters related to politics on the web. However, every now and then, there's no way around it, and this is one of those moments. There's this thing going on at airports in the US, and while many will see it as a separate issue, the body scanner issue, and the sad stories it has spawned, are symptoms of a far larger problem that is a direct threat to everything we've fought for during and since the Enlightenment.

They need to *NOT* give muslims special treatment and let them bypass the scanners and the patdowns like stupid sec of homeland security was saying today.

Wait, what? Did I read that right? They want to let muslims BYPASS the security checks? For real?! Not to be judgemental or anything but many muslims do have a grudge against the US and the very people who did attack you happen to have been, uh muslims. Not saying all muslims are terrorist and want to blow up america but it does seem a bit counter-productive to let the religious group that perhaps hate you the most (on average) bypass the security.
