Toy Story

Today Long Beach Airport, the local hub of Jet Blue, was closed for much of the day because of an unidentified hand-held videogame device. Hundreds were evacuated, according to an AP report, because screeners encountered the game in "raw form," when the wiring was exposed. Videogames have been falsely linked to terrorism in the past, as last year's Sonic Jihad debacle shows, but in an environment of ubiquitous computing with multiple devices, this form of airport security seems worthy of new parodies to supplement this one.
