Speaking of shared sacrifice, tens of thousands of Americans have put their lives on the line in the war on terror.
Many of them have spent days under broiling sun in deserts and nights on freezing mountain tops. They have been shot at and bombed, and several thousand have died, while many more have been injured.
And now some Americans are afraid to step in front of a whole body scanner at an airport to help thwart terrorists?
And some of those are then unwilling to endure a simple pat-down search by a member of their own sex?
Take a bus. Drive. Ride a train. Board a boat. Walk if you have to.
But get the hell out of the way.
