Log your anti-scanner comments with the feds by June 24th

The TSA has officially complied with the Notice and Comment requirement, reinforced by the courts last summer. I am not saying that I am holding my breath that commenting on an administrative law will have any effect, I do encourage all who are concerned about scanners to submit a comment. At the very least, they can not honestly say that nobody has complaints about TSA procedures, as they do with their so-called low rate of "customer" complaints. (Can't really file a complaint if I quit flying, can I? Also, seems like a great way to get flagged if I do fly.)

Click on the link above to the Federal Register see instructions on how to comment on the naked scanners and to read the full notice. According to wikipedia:
Interested parties frequently comb through the agency’s own data to find flaws in the agency’s reasoning. Also, interested parties’ comments on the rule then become part of this record.
UPDATE: And the notice itself says:
TSA invites ... invite comments relating to the economic, environmental, energy, or federalism impacts that might result from this rulemaking action.
...The most helpful comments reference a specific portion of the rulemaking, explain the reason for any recommended change, and include supporting data.
