Being Judged By The Company You Keep....

When I was in Costa Rica, one of my tour guides for a sea kayaking trip was a nice young lady who recounted that she could no longer fly in the United States without being taken out of the security line to be questioned, and to have her bags hand-searched. She confessed to having been a participant in the infamous Seattle protests against the WTO, and (although she did not engage in any inappropriate conduct and was not arrested) it seems quite possible that she was on a "terrorist watch list" due to that protest activity. The only "danger" she poses in real life is that she makes an absolutely killer squash soup, and her marinated tuna is to die for.

One wonders whether Sen. Ted Kennedy and Rep. John Lewis (or at least his namesake) were also guilty of making ill-timed visits to Seattle?
