In an age where you can be arrested in an airport for breathing the wrong way comes this latest stupidity.

A man was nearly arrested for wearing a t-shirt with Arabic script on it. Read the whole ‘sad but true’ tale here.

So what’s next, eh? It may get to the point where we have to provide a complete transcript of everyone we know, have met, will likely meet, where we’ve lived, worked, travelled, slept, ate, drunk, and so on along with a DNA sample, blood sample and hair sample. Maybe that’s the idea. Maybe it’s already happening.

Basically I think it goes like this. If you’re travelling in the USA, don’t think and don’t wear anything with any kind of design on it. Whoopie – it’s Chairman Mao’s vision all over again!
