The Phantom, proven not paranoid enough again. TSA's X-rated X-ray scanner coming to boats,  trains and buses near y'all, real soon. Janet says.

The next step in tightened security could be on U.S. public transportation, trains and boats.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says terrorists will continue to look for U.S. vulnerabilities, making tighter security standards necessary.

"[Terrorists] are going to continue to probe the system and try to find a way through," Napolitano said in an interview that aired Monday night on "Charlie Rose."

"I think the tighter we get on aviation, we have to also be thinking now about going on to mass transit or to trains or maritime. So, what do we need to be doing to strengthen our protections there?"

Told ya so.

All I can say is this will prove real interesting in states like Arizona.  Where concealed carry of pistols, revolvers, rifles, shotguns, knives, bats, swords, switchblades, ninja stars, kubotans, nunchaku, sai, kukries, bayonets, brass knuckles and Gatling guns... is legal. If you can schlep it you can have one under your coat.  How'd you like to be the official TSA ball fondler at the Phoenix bus station? 

Given the "Hands Off My Teabag!" talk from the Tea Party these days, I don't think Janet Napolitano has a very bright future after January.
