Re: TSA Full Body Scanners

500 airports are scheduled to have these installed by the end of the year and many airports already have them. Another 500 are scheduled to be installed next year. Here in Seattle the radio talk shows are buzzing about them because they are set to go live here in Seattle next month. My first though...

Re: Your preferred vaction type

For a whole family vacation, I prefer the all inclusive. It's nice not to have to worry about where you're going to eat, or what to do, etc.

When it's just me and the wife, I tend to go with boutique, smaller hotels, and we like to explore a little and eat at local joints.

Re: BuffettNews.Com Tropical Shirt...Who's interested? POLL!!

I like #3 the best, but I'm not a fan of having sayings/words on my tropical shirts, so I'll probably pass.

Re: Airline looses bag but refuses to refund baggage fee

Hell, they should refund the fee even if your bag is temporarily delayed. You're basically paying for a service (luggage delivery), if they don't provide that service, you should get your money back.

Re: Fantasy Football: Pigskins in Paradise

I'd probably be in. Depends on how early in the morning the draft would be. Late morning/early afternoon Mountain time would be best for me.

If you're even the slightest bit into fantasy, I'd recommend "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss. I posted about it earlier, he's a great new writer in the genre. The book is fantastic.

Re: LeBron James

I think the whole thing was idiotic. LeBron's public decision (On prime time national TV? Please. You're not that important. You want to give money to kids, just donate. Don't make a spectacle out of it.), the hypocritical response from the Cavs owner (He's a quitter, but we tried as hard as anybody...

Re: Now the PC people are jackin' with history!

Hm. You'd expect this from like an anti-smoking ad, but a museum? Don't they have a responsibility to leave art/history as it is and not "improve" it?

Re: Am I missing something?

I imagine it's contaminated and may not be worth saving to process. Also, it saves time and resources they'll (hopefully) use in other areas that drastically need it.
