New TSA rules: Play your instrument before boardingmain
Report from a Facebook friend:
If you happened to be in Terminal 1 at LAX just now and heard Sorcerer’s Apprentice wafting through the air, it was me serenading the TSA agents in hopes that my bassoon wouldn’t be confiscated. They insisted I prove it was a musical instrument. People were videotaping the whole kerfuffle.
This happened to me in Iowa at the aptly-abbreviated SUX airport, only I just had a mouthpiece.
