Zippered luggage isn't very secure

For those who travel with zippered cases or bags, there's food for thought.

A video posted at Nokia MOSH shows how very easy it is to open a zipped case. It can even be re-sealed, leaving no trace of illicit entry.

Worth watching . . . and perhaps switching to luggage fastened more securely!

I figure it's a moot point, given that once the bag is out of my sight, some barely literate TSA thug will go through it anyway, even if I did lock it (and said thugs have stolen from me before). I have the option of using the "approved" locks, to which they and everybody else with the urge to obtain it has the key already, or I can use my own lock, which they will then cut off because I must be hiding something. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
