So I'm watching the "Today Show" the other morning, they were talking of a story about a guy at the airport refusing to be pat down or body scanned. They interviewed many people and most of them agree while it can be an invasion of privacy and unpleasant, it's necessary for security purposes.

What really made me sit up out of bed was when they said that kids 12 and under are not put through such measures. I found myself thinking "why not"? After all, adults use children for criminal activity every day.

Completely untrue!
