Re: filmscanners: X-ray scanners/etc
Good luck getting them to do this. I had very little success getting film
hand inspected (even at Logan) before 9/11 and I'd expect it will be even
more difficult now. We'll go through our typical mood swing of being lax,
to overreacting, to slacking off again. (Doesn't the airline security bill
allow for the return of lowest bid, lowest wage security after 3 years?).
