Hypocrisy on airport security

Hypocrisy on airport security

Published: January 31 © The Washington Post Company

I wholeheartedly agree with Meg Edson [letters,
Jan. 23]. Those “intrusive” airport scanners were purchased and installed at great expense to protect the traveling public. Even the most modest among us would generally prefer airport screeners viewing a brief outline of our bodies than enduring a pat-down search.
But the most disturbing part of all of this is that those scanners will now be replaced — again, at great taxpayer expense — at a time when we are involved in contentious debates about our fiscal problems. This seems to be a clear example of how many Americans want it all and want the “government” to provide it but don’t want to help pay for it.
Can’t we behave more intelligently and more responsibly than this?
