TSA's priority: Protect Tulsa and Albuquerque; Screw New York

So those spiffy full-body scanners that can ID bombs under your clothes? They're secondary screening at most airports, and you'd think they'd be primary screening at some more important sky hubs. You'd be wrong, of course, because they are used for primary screening in some smaller airports, instead of the big ones you'd expect.
The six airports where full body scanners are being used for what TSA calls 'primary screenings' are:
Albuquerque, N.M.
Las Vegas, Nev.
Miami, Fla.
San Francisco
Salt Lake City, Utah
Tulsa, Okla.

You think that's bad?
The remainder of the machines are being used for secondary screenings in
Atlanta, Ga.
Denver, Colo.
Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas
Indianapolis, Ind.
Jacksonville, Fla.
Tampa, Fla.
Los Angeles
Phoenix, Ariz.
Raleigh-Durham, N.C.
Richmond, Va.
Ronald Reagan Washington National
Detroit, Mich.

What's missing? How about any of the airports where the 9/11 hijacks originated: Boston, Newark, and Washington-Dulles.

TSA for the win! Sigh.
