An immodest proposal (a very variagated variation on Swift's)
Total nudity as crowd security.
At any public event, everyone, participants and observers, should be totally undressed.
Those arriving by public transit would have disrobed at the various stations where they boarded.
Those arriving by their autos would strip before exiting the parking lots.
Those coming on foot from proximate locations would have left their clothes back in their
apartments or condos
Everyone approaching the event, indoor or outdoor, would be naked. Totally. No way to carry
or wear anything explosive (or otherwise) if you are only clad in your skin (and this might mean
that exceptionally hairy people would be banned -- or scanned ....
But explosives come in various forms and configurations, some of which could easily be "internalized"
(to put it politely). Thus ... everyone would have to pass through scanning devices as they approached
the locale of the event.
Obviously this sort of super-security system offers at least three advantages:
Far fewer people would attend anything if they had to go naked.
This would especially apply to those of Islamic beliefs
Participants in demanding physical activities would be more comfortable wearing less,
and might even feel more "classical" (in that original Olympics were done naked)
Events would be held when in warm places or temperatures.
And finally, people might start paying more attention to the condition of their bodies!!!

Perhaps an experimental run with the women's soccer teams.

Perhaps my suggestion is sexist. It isn't necessarily intended to be so at least completely. It is much more aesthetically pleasing a suggestion than a run with men that all look like me. Believe me, you don't want that kind of terrorism.
