Sensible passengers in Elmira, NY

Here's what passengers are quoted as saying when asked about the cartoon-image software scanner coming to Elmira, NY (which already has scanners):

Reinhard Dieg, of Elmira, says, "Obviously we need something, but i don't think Elmira is that big of a hurry to get body scans. I don't think we have to worry about terrorists right away."

Sharon Michaels, of Elmira, says, "I'm more concerned with the handicap people and how they're trying to get through after watching another lady have to struggle in and out and have a lady lift her."
The first passenger realizes that this is security theater, and the second passenger realizes that the disabled are harassed by TSA as a matter of course (but erroneously thinks abridging their rights in a more sugar-coated way is better).
