Pardon the double post! 'Scuze mee!

OK. Apparently a pilots' union is speaking out now about this same stuff.

Capt. Dave Bates

While I’m sure that each of us recognizes that the threats to our lives are real, the practice of airport security screening of airline pilots has spun out of control and does nothing to improve national security. It’s long past time that policymakers take the steps necessary to exempt commercial pilots from airport security screening and grant designated pilot access to SIDA utilizing either Crew Pass or biometric identification.

Apparently it's irking the pilots enough with TSA to go on strike.
I just heard a CBS radio report and basically, aside from stripping down, and all the other touchy-feely going on... being scanned with devices that use various types of radiation are unreasonable because they "needlessly expose pilots to more unnecessary radiation than what they already must face in their job". Going on to say pretty much that it is insulting to individual dignity.

The battle rages on.

That's right, Bixby Snyder folks.
