Airport Pat-downs Solutions

One solution harks back to ancient times. Hire only blind, tactile-gifted eunuchs.

Supplement the eunuchs with something many households already have, crotch-sniffing dogs.

Seriously, consider profiling as a means to an end of flight safety. That should be the first line of defense. Follow that with the use of animals which are trained in detection of certain material, as the second line of defense. Use luggage inspection as a third line of defense. Use wallet credentials as identification, something like a passport certification, as a fourth line of defense. Fifth, passports with photos may be required as a necessity in this age of terrorism. Sixth, have planes that fly only luggage, after it has been inspected. The cost may be shifted to the passenger. Seventh, require advance purchase of tickets and keep flight numbers under wraps until the passenger shows up at the airport.

Following my quick, off the top of my mind, suggestions, what measures can the public suggest? Set up a web site for that purpose of brainstorming the problem. Who knows, there may be some slick gadgets, techniques or technologies out there. Time for new inventions!
