John Daley reports:
While running through Logan airport yesterday, I was chased by a TV reporter who wanted to get my angry response to the delays involved with flying American. Before he could set up the shot I told him that, although I had to fly a day late, my experience was very positive. ...

Train stopped and searched at Park Street this morning; no indication (in the story) if the MBTA actually found the two alleged guys in fatigues talking loudly enough about "explosives" at Central Square to get a nearby woman to say something or whether they activated the urban assault vehicle.

No. I'm Al Qaeda. I'm with them. I'm here to blow things up.

The Outraged Liberal says it's not loony MIT students but the way the government is now tracking even the books American travelers carry with them:
... Maybe George Orwell's only mistake was not naming his book 2007?
So this college student goes up to a counter at Logan with a blinking circuit board strapped to her chest and a blob of unidentifiable material ...
"She claims that it was just art and she was proud of the art and wanted to display it. I am not sure why she had the... Read more
