Nakedizing machines - what next?

  The drive to put full-body scanners in all major airports is meeting with resistance from activists and lawmakers. "We don't need to look at naked 8-year-olds and grandmothers to secure airplanes," Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said Friday. The pro-privacy stand does not follow traditional ideological lines; Republicans and Democrats have united on the issue now and in the past.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-tc-nw-privacy-scanners-0108-jan10,0,1792648.story   CASPIAN (Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering) is a grass-roots consumer group fighting retail surveillance schemes since 1999 and irresponsible RFID use since 2002. With thousands of members in all 50 U.S. states and over 30 countries worldwide, CASPIAN seeks to educate consumers about marketing strategies that invade their privacy and encourage privacy-conscious shopping habits across the retail spectrum.  http://www.spychips.com/ http://www.antichips.com/ http://www.nocards.org/
