+ - MIT Student arrested at Airport for LED Art->

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes: An MIT student was arrested today at Logan Airport because she "had a computer circuit board and wiring in plain view over a black hooded sweat shirt she was wearing" when talking to a staffer at an information booth. She was visiting the airport to greet an arriving friend. She was wearing the shirt at a Career Fair earlier to stand out, and apparently didn't change before entering the airport. The police believed the object was a bomb and she was surrounded by a group of officers with submachine guns. Didn't the city learn its lesson from the Aqua Teen Hunger Scare?

+ - Libertarian Ron Paul's Strong Internet Support

Submitted by LuckyJohnson
LuckyJohnson writes: Libertarian Republican hopeful for the '08 Presidential race, Ron Paul, has been shown to have surprisingly strong support on the Internet, while he seems to be relatively unknown outside. He even has a very popular YouTube Channel with over 35,000 views. Have we now reached a point where the Internet is allowing candidates who have small amounts of funds to spend on campaigning, to now compete with the big dogs in being able to reach people with their message and gain support?
