    it would be better to have a beam that detonated all bombs 5 miles from the airport

    Fun thought, but we'd have a lot of lawsuits on our hands. You'd have to be standing in front of a transmitter that swept all RF/Microwave frequencies. Not good for the eyes. You guys might start knowing what women talk about when they complain about hot flashes.

    Granted, they tend to use cell phone and key fob frequencies at this time, but you'd see terrorists quickly get innovative with receiver frequency ranges.

    I just returned from Toronto now where everyone goes through the magatometer and yur briefcase and laptop are gone through with a fine tooth comb. But, now they've added another level that everyone gets hand searched.

    Yes, I mean hands on your body and I mean everybody that's coming to the states! There are no exceptions except the handicapped. Plus your briefcase and carry on are completelt searched again. So I guess the full body scanners are as bad as having Raja patting you down.
