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.

All that he had to do was wave his hand and say, "This is not the cane that you are looking for."
