Can we please get gubment workers with half a frigging brain. It seems as though actor Peter Mayhew who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars movies was detained by the TSA because his cane was in the shape of a lightsaber.
'Star Wars' Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew detained by TSA for light saber cane
Everyone has his own way to deal with airport security -- some go with the flow, some show up naked. But the man who played Chewbacca in the "Star Wars" films had a different approach: Last week, when confronted with TSA agents who thought his cane looked suspicious, Peter Mayhew reached for his Twitter account -- not a light saber.
Of course, the light saber was at the center of the controversy. The 7-foot-3-inch hospital worker-turned-Chewbacca player uses a light saber-shaped cane to get around, and on June 3 TSA agents in Denver felt it was a suspicious item. http://www.today.com/entertainment/s...ber-6C10262981The Obama Administration: Deny.

Thousands Standing Around. Figures.
On a semi-related note: I thought he died about five years ago. Hmph. Oh well. Glad he's still alive and kickin'.Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
