Homeland Security at Work.

It occurs to me after reading this article that since Logan Airport happens to be in East Boston, any homeland security breach will end up arraigned at East Boston District Court. On the bright side, I'm sure it is slightly more interesting than what they were used to getting. Unlike Cat Stevens, this guy was at least carrying a weapon. By the way, Cat Stevens was deported through Logan this morning--he couldn't go to Washington D.C., but apparently he's not too dangerous to pass through Eastie.

I realize this isn't really related to Eastie, but according to this article in the Guardian, back in May during his last trip to the U.S. , Mr. Stevens met with officials of the White House's office of faith-based and community initiatives to discuss philanthropic work." But now "The U.S. department of homeland security said last night that fresh intelligence had been gathered since then." Call me crazy, but that sounds like a "flip-flop" to me.
