The public protest over the full body scanners and the "enhanced pat-downs" in the USA has come and gone on the busiest day for air travel in that country. From all reports the National Opt Out Day was hardly a resounding success, even though the organizers were claiming a great success in raising public awareness. Somewhat true I guess. Too bad from my point of view, though this would undoubtedly be a hard one to get off the ground (pun intended). Perhaps 40% of the American population is terrorized by their government's propaganda about a terrorist under every bed. Another 40% is terrorized by the government itself and would rather not make waves in an airport for fear of the consequences.
Be that as it may the graphic above is still one great and incisive thing to come out of this campaign. Enjoy.
