Invasion of the Body Scanners

ONE argument I hear in defense of invasive body scanners: Which plane would you risk getting on: the one where everyone had to STEP through these scanners or the one where they did not?

IN contrast, THE better question is: Which plane would you risk getting on: the one where everyone (including you) went through these scanners for $xxx or the one where no one does and costs you only $yyy? At some point, people feel incremental measures are WRONG and are willing to take a risk. Or more appropriately, some people understand there is always risk (no matter which DIRECTION you go) and even the best government can never eliminate it.
