Salon reports that we have a threat to our national security: The underwire bra. Last month, a woman named Lori Plato set off security alarms while entering a federal courthouse in Idaho. Plato told the AP that the U.S. Marshals asked her to remove her bra but gave her no privacy options: "I asked if I could go into the bathroom because they didn't have a privacy screen and no women security officers were available. They said, 'No.'" A U.S. marshal spokesman, when asked if bras are dangerous, reportedly replied: "I don't think they're considered a weapon, really, the last time I looked." Weapon, no. Implement of torture? Possibly. [Salon]
