Forbes on Drive By X-Ray Scanning

I wouldn't have believed it possible, but here's the link to the Forbes article on vans being outfitted with x-ray scanning capabilities.
According to the article, there are at least 500 vans operating now. Useful purposes, among them scanning for explosives, bodies, drugs and weapons, give law enforcement a logical line to anyone who questions privacy. After all, haven't Americans given up all rights just to fly safely? Our flight mates expect us to, quit complaining.
This is all just surface information. Its just the ground work. At what point will drive by scannings of neighborhoods become routine?
"Just checking for drug labs".
What else will be searched, when and why is yet to be uncovered.
As the wikileaks drama unfolds, we can see there's a lot going on behind the scenes, political embarrassments, and god knows what all.
Now this is news. Thanks for writing about something important, and not another story about the royal wedding, Tiger Woods scandal, or Britney Spears.
