Promises Broken, Promises Kept

Full body scanners are all the rage these days. Your junk and your trunk are not safe from the government groping, there is probably medical danger (x-ray radiation and back-scatter x-ray radiation), and, really, flying is just not fun anymore.

Land of the free? Home of the brave? Why do x-ray techs wear those lead vests anyways?

They also say (whoever THEY are) that the images from your body scan will be destroyed immediately.

According to an article at, "At the heart of the controversy over "body scanners" is a promise: The images of our naked bodies will never be public. U.S. Marshals in a Florida Federal courthouse saved 35,000 images on their scanner. These are those images."

And, of course, those images are up for public viewing. Imagine that.

Shocking right?

Did the government lie?


Check that: YES.

You know who doesn't lie?

BMR4, that's who.

Our CD release party for the new record, "Fixing a Hole", is on Nov. 21 at Martyr's in Chicago. You can view the invite and all the details for the show right here.

Truth: music to your ears.

So it goes.
