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.

Good point. I guess I felt a bit lenient about it since I got patted down today when entering the Swiss Embassy and well, it was no big deal. It was a pretty half-hearted patting down though so I guess it depends on how thorough the person doing the patting is.
