I’m a little late posting this, but Penn Jillette’s been having adventures with airport security folk. He handled the initial incident really well, but the followup is kind of… well, okay, he’s reporting not storytelling here, but it’s an anticlimax for those of us who’d like to see the pocket-Nazi army of X-ray police reined back within the bounds of Constitutionality. He’s a good geek, though, and he did what he could to advance the cause, not to mention foregrounding the effect that celebrity status has on the whole situation. Both pieces are worth your time.
