Here's an interesting item from today's New York Times:
The Department of Homeland Security ordered a United Airlines jet flying from London to Washington rerouted to Bangor, Me., on Tuesday afternoon so it could intercept a passenger, Yusuf Islam, the musician formerly known as Cat Stevens, two government officials said.
Cat is not quoted in the NYT article, which is a shame because I can imagine him having some interesting things to say.
- "And all this time I thought I was being followed by a moonshadow!"
- "I knew I should have taken the peace train!"
- "Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world."
