I don't fly anymore because of these endless issues.
If I did, though, I'd probably opt for the x-ray, if the radiaiton exposure was minimal.
What kind of choice is it really? Get felt up or stripped.
What they to do is straighten out their administrative procedures for discerning indidivuduals under suspeciion before they board.
This part if not brain surgerty. Why they can't get their act together here shows what kind of brains are operating the whole thing -- making that alone - the worse reason to flow -- even more so that their having people who feel you up or take pictres of you nude.
I don't like flying anyway, simply because its NICER to go by train.
You don't have to suffer the crunch, the seats are bigger, you can actually see the scenery, you can walk and schmooze with your neighbors at your seat, in the lounge and restaurant cars, etc.
Take a small pillow for your head, and the rails will rock you to sleep. Finish your book or writing, etc, etc, etc.
Ferries are even bigger, and the scenery is even more entrancing, the company even more friendly.
Oh, I forgot one: DON'T get "patted" down or go through the voyeur machines...
