An article from USA Today:
The Transportation Security Administration announced Friday that it would retest every full-body X-ray scanner that emits ionizing radiation — 247 machines at 38 airports — after maintenance records on some of the devices showed radiation levels 10 times higher than expected.
Commentary will be in the form of uber-snarkification, as attempting anything else would be counterproductive. And please remember: If there’s truth in humor, then undeniable facts of life reside in snark.
Per the latest
nudge memo from OIRA*, each individual ionizing radiation test will be performed a minimum of twice per subject-participant and test subjects used will be derived solely from the passenger classification of ‘TBC’ (Typical Bitter Clingers).
Test subjects will not be informed of this mandated procedure until after all tests are completed nationally. Percentage of test subjects to be used vs. available designated passenger pool: 100. Test date range: Immediate commencement. End date TBA in September 2011.
