Despite all the protests from the TSA that there was nothing (nothing!) wrong with requiring everyone to display their naked body or be groped by TSA employees in order to board an airplane, it appears that even TSA officials are recognizing that the nudie scanners may have gone a bit too far. The TSA is now testing new screening machines that display a generic body outline, rather than showing a person's actual body. Of course, there's no word on if the TSA will similarly mislead the public about the safety (or lack of safety) in these new machines. Also, there's no indication if these new machines will be as easily defeated as the old ones.
