Bringing the water to a slow boil

This post at with three anecdotes confirms what I've suspected based on other reports here and there: the scanners are becoming primary screening for all passengers. Since the scanners have been installed, it has been only the occasional passenger who was directed to the scanner, while everyone else went through the metal detector - every third, fourth, or tenth passenger. Now there are reports of the metal detector not being used at all with everybody being directed through the scanner.
