18. And the beat goes on,
CHORUS:
The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La de da de de, la de da de da

Charleston was once the rage, uh huh
History has turned the page, uh huh
The mini skirts the current thing, uh huh
Teenybopper is our newborn king, uh huh

Chorus

The grocery store's the super mart, uh huh
Little girls still break their hearts, uh huh
And men still keep on marching off to war
Electrically they keep a baseball score

Chorus

Grandmas sit in chairs and reminisce
Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss
The cars keep going faster all the time
Bums still cry "hey buddy, have you got a dime"

Chorus

4. CNN had same story. Some guy was pulled aside for additional
screening, and when he got his shoes back on, he took off running, nobody knows why. As a precaution, they shut down the AP and are searching for him.

12. I've been at LaGuardia when something like that happened
and they didn't shut down the whole airport. They didn't even evacuate the terminal, they just held all planes from taking off until they caught him.

22. They ought to blow up his underwear on the tarmac like they did on live TV
a few months back. Nothing like blasting to smithereens a suitcase full of BVD's to keep the sheeple scared.

The big news orgs in America are so laughably obvious in their desire to sell FEAR they need to change their logos to reflect their new role.

23.  Shoe alert shuts New York airport (BBC)

Shoe alert shuts New York airport
New York's LaGuardia airport has evacuated passengers and grounded flights after a man's shoe triggered a bomb alert during screening.

The man was reportedly let pass through security around 1500 (2000 GMT) despite setting off an alarm for explosives residue and a search was launched.

Officials could not say immediately why the man was allowed to pass through.

Hundreds of people were evacuated from the Delta Airlines terminal and departures suspended.


But incoming flights were allowed to land, said Yolande Clark, a spokeswoman for the federal Transport Security Administration.

Ms Clark said the man, who had been selected for secondary screening, afterwards "put on his shoes and exited the area".

However, other reports suggested the suspect had fled the screening area without his shoes.
