    (I'm not being glib about the UNIVERSITY credentials. You don't think they do a pretty good background check to each their profs?? Have we had any incidence of a college professor being a terrorist yet? I can't remember one).
    Yes. The Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, was a former college math professor.
    Thanks from Cicero

    At New York’s Kennedy airport today, a person later discovered to be a public school teacher, was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a drafting triangle, a compass, and a calculator.

    During a press conference the Attorney General said he believed the man was a member of the notorious al-Gebra movement and the FBI intends to charge him with transporting weapons of math instruction.

    “Al-Gebra is a fearsum, transverse cult,” the Attorney General said. “As a group they seek means of average solutions by extremes, and sometimes randomly go off on tangents in search of absolute values. A member of al-Gebra may use acute alias such as ‘x’ or ‘y’ and refer to himself as an unknown identity, but we have determined that he is likely to belong to a common denominator — the axis of medieval that coordinates in every country.” The Attorney General continued, “Al-Gebra functions as a bunch of standard deviations that have been tribal since the time of Noah’s arc,” a remark that struck a chord with the media. “They are inordinate in terrorism, of that I’m abscissaly sure.

    Is "something" a guy writing numbers on a pad of paper?

    Kind of always felt the "see something, say something" theme had to do with items not so much people. An unattended backpack or watching someone set something down and walk away thing. But I have heard quite a few stories like this where people wont fly, get on buses or trains with people they think are Middle Eastern. After the marathon bombings in Boston there were all sorts of news reports of people running to police to say they say "Arab looking men with backpacks." All of course were college kids on their way to class, but they all had to be stopped and checked. When left to make decisions and determinations, people can be wacky.

    Hard to be, isn't it? Obama also said "don't do stupid stuff." So if we're just going by pronouncement of the administration, this woman is in some difficulty.
