Commentary: Screening Thumbs

Commentator Andrei Codrescu says that the gathering of all foreign thumbprints at the nation's airports doesn't go far enough. He says we should collect the thumbs. He says bad people would be willing to give up the digit to live in our Wal-Mart paradise. Really bad people who are going to be suicide bombers anyway won't mind either.
