GREAT MOMENTS IN THE WAR ON TERRORISM

Boing Boing - The NY Yankees banned sunblock at Yankee stadium "to prevent terrorism." On a blistering hot day. And sold high-markup, crappy sunblock inside the gates. . . Security guards collected garbage bags full of sunblock at the entrances to Yankee Stadium over the sweltering weekend, when temps hit 96 degrees and the UV index reached a skin-scorching 9 out of 10 - a move team officials said was to protect the Stadium from terrorism. . . .The Stadium does sell 1-ounce bottles of Arizona Sun SPF 15 for $5 - a huge markup that makes its beer seem cheap.

In Seattle, at Safeco Field, they won't let you bring in your own beverages, including water, so that they can make you buy them inside the ballpark.

They say it's for security reasons, but it's obvious by the way they search your bags that they're only looking for beverages, not potential weapons.

Fortunately, sunscreen isn't much of an issue here.

I just found this pretty awsome article, The Last Patriot, that sheds some light on the first encounters america had with Jihadist back in the late 1700s. Its a really interesting article worth checking out.
