Many, many, years ago, New York City had a mayor named, Fiorello La Guardia, who often said: “when I make a mistake it’s a beaut.” Naturally, the entire New York region loved our “Little Flower” for his honesty because he accepted responsibility for actions. After initially claiming Bollywood star, Shahrukh Khan was questioned for two hours because there was suspicion he was a terrorist, security officials now claim the superstar was not detained because of his surname but his missing baggage. Shucks, I should have realized that every airline passenger whose baggage is missing is subjected to a two hour questioning concerning his past terrorist activities.
According to Khan, there were twenty people in the same detention room and it is doubtful if they were there due to missing baggage. “i was clearly told that my name flashed on their computer and therefore they had to question me.” As he noted, “when you have issued me a visa, and imprints of my fingers and my photograph on it, I am sure it is there on your system. Why do I have to go through the ordeal?”
Look at the bright side, Mr. Khan. I am certain President Obama will shortly call to invite you for a beer with him at the White House. Gee, I wonder if the other twenty people in the detention room will get anything like that!
