Logan PCB stupidity

Postby mrclark » Fri Sep 21, 2007 8:03 pm UTC

According to cnn and a variety of other sources, Star Simpson, a MIT student, was arrested at logan for "having a hoax device".

By having a hoax device, they really mean "a hoodie with a circuit board stitched to it". :roll:

According to the article, she was at logan because she was meeting a flight coming in from Oakland, CA.

Please please tell me this wasn't one of us caught up in the clusterfuck that is boston hysteri^H^H^H^security while meeting someone else coming in for this weekend's festivities.

If it is, perhaps some community support should be arranged.

But yes, this is clearly fair warning to all incoming visitors not to display circuit boards, batteries, and wires all connected upon your person or otherwise in plain sight.
