It would be easy to find discouraging news in today’s
blog (like the fact that the TSA is totally out of control), but please don’t.
After all, it’s Good News Monday. The important thing in his story is that
common sense and justice ultimately prevailed. The 69 year old actor who played Chewbacca in
the Star Wars movies was heading home to Texas after appearing at the Denver
Comic Con Convention when airport TSA agents detained him after deciding that his
cane — a custom made cane that looks like a light saber — was a weapon.
To paraphrase Jim Croce, you don’t tug on Superman’s
cape. You don’t pull the mask of the old Lone Ranger. And you don’t try to take a super-cool cane away from "Chewy."
