You’ve got to read this. It’s a journal entry by Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller (you know, the magician/comedians that do really gross illusions). Well, Penn (the tall one) had a bit of an experience when he flew back in November with out wonderful new Federal airport security screeners. Here’s a brief excerpt:
I say, “You mean videotape? Yeah, go get it.”
She says, “Well, it’ll take a long time, and you don’t want to miss your flight. We have no problem with you, you’re free to go.”
The cop says, “Your guy grabbed his crank. That ain’t right.”
The whole story is really funny and sad, all at the same time. I laughed. I cried. It moved me.
