This will hardly come as a surprise, but Slashdot alerts us to the news that the Supreme Court has chosen not to hear John Corbett's quixotic appeal against the legality of the naked scanners now being commonly used in airports (though, via upgrades, there's now less nudity involved). The legal effort was a long shot from the beginning. Corbett has been on a crusade against the machines, which I appreciate -- but his efforts sometimes seem to go too far, and didn't do much to help his case.
