"Beam me up, Scotty. Thereís no intelligent life on this planet."
I couldnít help but think of that apocryphal quote from "Star Trek" as I gazed at the full-body scanners in the security lines at Newark Airport on Thursday.
The scanner booths, which bear a resemblance to that mythical "transporter" in the TV series, werenít in use that day. But when I called Transportation Security Administration spokesperson Ann Davis on Friday, she informed me that the plan is for all passengers to be required to go through what amounts to a nude photo shoot before boarding an airplane.
Thatís unless, of course, that passenger wants to have his or her genitals groped by an angry federal employee.
