Boing Boing: A Directory of Wonderful Things: "My daughter was scared and shaken up by the ordeal and told us that she 'hated it.' At least the security people were polite to her. But they were like polite robots, unable to laugh at the fact that someone had mistakenly pegged a little girl as a potential terrorist.
