NEW YORK (CBS) ― New security technology to detect threats like explosive devices will be tested at PATH train stations over the next month.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the trans-Hudson River commuter train system, announced Monday that the pilot program will start June 10 and run through July 10.

The program will test passive millimeter wave technology, which can detect explosives hidden under clothing.

The Port Authority says all passengers entering a station where the testing is taking place will be tested, and anyone who does not want to be tested will have to use another station.

INTERESTING: Six small meals per day

Frau’s in the hospital for her ongoing medical adventure. The show Mystery Diagnosis has nothing on her. But, she has one valid gripe. The Endocrinologists treating her diabetes and the various and sundry dietitians all tell her to eat six small meals daily. OK, good advice. But in the hospital, she only has the option of three meals per day. I find this interesting. Next to the excessive charge for parking and TV/Phone, it’s the stupidity of the “system”!

GUNS: Should go to jail for stupidity

Would-be gangster shoots off own manhood

A would-be gangster shot himself in the crutch when his gun went off half cocked in his pocket.

Lukas Neuhardt, 27, had forgotten to put the safety catch on when he stuffed the gun into his trouser pocket to impress pals in Saarbruecken, Germany.

*** and ***

Now – after surgeons stitched his manhood back together – he’s facing up to three years in jail for breaching Germany’s tough new anti gun laws.

*** end quote ***

See they need a “gun culture” like the Wild West.

Until this country went nuts over fear of guns, everyone knew guns as tools.
