EU lawmakers have delayed the introduction at airports of full body scanners, machines that generate images of passengers - minus their clothes.
MEPs voted for a further study on the implications for privacy and health.
Computer pictures generated by the scanners give an outline of passengers' bodies beneath their clothes.



Anyone for or against these new scanners?

My "passenger body outline" would look pretty ridiculous in the screen!! But right after 9/11 I've watched some humilliating scenes in airports, especially involving old age citizens, and so this maybe a solution. Although security is critical issue, I believe it must be very careful judged wich path we go. Keep in mind that every restriction in our citizenship, not only is set back for a long fight, but also is very hard to recover.

Of course I love you. Now get me a beer.
