Just Wondering….

If someone with apparent bad taste compliments an article of clothing you are wearing, should you be concerned?

You Heard it Here First

One of the things about my job is that I repeatedly go in an out of a variety of buildings that require you to go through a metal detector.

On Wednesday I was at Superior Court in downtown and was in and out of the building no fewer than five times. Each time I had to put my briefcase and cell phone on the conveyor belt and walk through the metal detector. At least three of those times I beeped (though nothing on my person had changed) and the security guard had to “wand” me.

I’m sure that in about 20 years we’re going to read headlines screaming that these seeminly innocuous metal detectors give off radiation and cause cancer.

Remember: you heard it here first.
