The problem with molecular sniffing

Interesting. I believe that the bomb-sniffing should be done at the shipping container level—on everything.

I heard that if you shake hands with an old guy taking nitroglycerin pills then you are screwed at the airport!

I heard that, in some countries, if you walk in with 2 or 3 poppy seeds on the soles of your shoes, you can get arrested AND CONVICTED of possessing drugs, and go to prison. That's like convicting you of farming if you have a little cow-flop on your shoe.

Yeah, I'm not going to jam into economy class for hours to see those countries!
