Yes, I fly out of Portland quite often. They do not have the new scanner and they rarely pat down.
Write this down Naran. November 20, 2010. I agree with Old Dame Fortune.

I have written it down. We can celebrate next November. Assuming we are all able to get on the internet by next November.
But Im curious what you agree with me about, Roger Ek.
About giving up liberty for security? About the apathetic public? About Chris Coose being a comrade from the left? Or about the 4th amendment?
Every time I fly I get profiled. I’m convinced TSA loves me. They pick me out of lines and swab my fingers and boots for bomb making chemicals. They take twice as long peeking into my bags. I got the pat downs long before it was mandatory. My family even comment on how I tent to draw attention to the group for no apparent reasons.
I have an idea what they are profiling and they need more training on it!
Just bend over and relax ma'am, it will only take a second.....
Taking some of your clothes off is "disorderly conduct"?
Man Strips at Va. Airport Checkpoint in Protest
Published December 31, 2010
RICHMOND, Va. -- Police say a man stripped to his underwear ... in a protest against security procedures.
... the man took off his shirt and pants at Richmond International Airport ... He had scrawled across his chest a reference to the Constitution's 4th Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure.
Tobey was interviewed by airport police and federal authorities, issued a citation for disorderly conduct and released. He is scheduled for arraignment on Jan. 10.
I do vinyl graphics in which I decorate kiosks in secure areas in airports. My job requires I use sharp instruments. Box cutters, razor knives, exacto knives, and so on. My getting my tools past security was out of the question. Would never happen! Well yes it would, and did. I walked through security and my tool bag appeared on the other side. Odd how that happens. We live in a fantisiey world.
