Listening to The Clash or Led Zepplin can get you arrested

A man was taken off a flight for listening to London's Falling and Immigrant Song. He was interrogated for 3 hrs under the new Terrorism Act law in the UK. Apparrently he was in a Taxi listening to the music and singing along and the driver was scared. So he warned Airport Authorities.

OMG! What a ridiculous story! What is this world coming to? Hold up an entire flight because of the music a passenger chooses to listen to?

I couldn't believe this when I got an e-mail about it. Someone's taste in music determines their politics? Yeah, right.

95% of the article is self-reported by the alleged victim. Even if he was removed from the flight, the basis for the removal is essentially unreported.

I think they were entirely right to crack down on these bands, as they are both opposed to our status quo, and thus can only accurately be described as terrorists. Right? Even if the story is a furphy, it may help to persuade other deviants to keep their beliefs quiet, and in that way can only help preserve the uneasy truce. I'm down with it, guys.

I can think of many bands that people should be arrested for listening too.

1. Blink 182 2. Matchbox Twenty . . .

I love time I fly in and out of the UK I'll remember to sing softly along with my mp3 player on the plane and when people give me nasty or strange looks I'll stare them down with crazy eyes. We'll see what happens lol.
