When you make Saturday Night Live, you know you’ve made it. Go TSA!
While the news has created countless headlines, blog posts (mine included) and other online/offline discussions, it seems American’s are generally in support of the new full-body airport scanners. Which makes me wonder how many of you will be participating in National Op-Out Day on Nov. 24, the day before Thanksgiving and the busiest travel day of the year…
- Last week CBS released a poll that found four in five people support full-body airport scanners.
- A USA Today/Gallup poll released last week said that 78 percent of air travelers approve of full-body scanners in airports and 84 percent believe the scanners would prevent explosives from being carried on a plane.
- Some 98 percent of passengers say they would rather have a full-body scan than a pat-down search.
What do you think? Should TSA use these types of scanners and/or “pat downs”? Are you planning to participate in the protest movement – National Op-Out Day?
If you’re traveling this holiday, we’d love to hear your TSA experience.
