Airport-based cancer screening

So instead of subjecting myself to yet another $3000 CT scan, I’m thinking I should travel to Amsterdam instead, hang out for a day or so, and then get a free full-body security scan at the airport before flying home. A round-trip ticket is only about $900, and I’d be thrilled to have my “privacy” violated this way. Those ACLU folks have apparently never been cancer patients. Just think what a gift it would be to humanity if we combined airport passenger security with cancer screening. I should talk to Janet Napolitano about this.
