TSA Approves Scanner That Will Let Fliers Who Pay Keep Their Shoes On

Filed under: Bush Whacked,Rant,Weird,WTF??? — 12:38 am

WTF!!! It appears to be all about the $$$ for EVERYTHING during the Bushco administration. This is not right!

The U.S. government approved new technology that will automatically scan shoes and boots for bombs, and promises that travelers will soon be spared the trouble of scurrying through security in their socks. But the new machines will be available only to travelers who pay to join a special program, at least at first.

The shoe scanner is expected to draw customers to the program because not only will it speed up lines. It will also offer another perk — remaining shod — to attract customers willing to pay annual fees of about $100.

Texas Justice

Filed under: Public Service,Technology,Weird — 8:14 am

Read the last statements of executed Texas death row inmates. Texas now publishes the last statements online in a extremely well organised database. Search through offender name, offender information (scanned OCR with pics and crime description). If that’s a bit too heavy, why not just browse through some last meals on death row?
