Improved Airport Security Will Allow Shoes On

In a prediction sure to please many modest Americans, Department of Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano had this to say as reported by ABC News:

“We are moving towards an intelligence and risk-based approach to how we screen,” she said. “I think one of the first things you will see over time is the ability to keep your shoes on. One of the last things is the reduction or limitation on liquids.”

The move is hailed as a remarkable breakthrough which will allow for greater traveler privacy  when using Rapiscan, the controversial high-tech scanner used as a passenger screening device at many airports throughout the country.  Rapiscan scanner currently produces high quality scan x-rays that  have recently come under fire from travelers for privacy issues.  The picture below illustrates the detailed nature of a scan featuring a passenger without shoes, as is the current procedure:

Under the new rules which will allow passengers to keep their shoes on during the security process, the scan pictures will look like this:

Experts believe the new “shoes on” policy should help to alleviate privacy issues and scan anxiety for air passengers.
