Opt Out of a Body Scan? Then Brace Yourself 02 Nov 2010 ...I was unhappy last week when some security screeners at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago started yelling. "Opt out! We got an opt out!" one bellowed about me in a tone that people in my desert neighborhood in Tucson usually reserve for declaring, "Rattlesnake!" Other screeners took up the "Opt out!" shout. I was marched from the metal detector lane to one of those nearby whole-body imagers, ordered to take everything out of my pockets, remove my belt and hold my possessions up high. Then I was required to stand still while I received a rough pat-down by a man whose résumé, I suspected, included experience at a state prison.
