I am not sure if that answer was cocky, humorous or stupid; in the St.
Louis at  the airport definitely the latter.  You WILL be arrested and
charged.  Ditto the R.A.Y. building - federal employees including
immigration and, IIRC, the IRS.  No sense of humor at all.  Perhaps
understandably.  Made me turn on my Cell Phone... to make sure it realy
WAS a cell phone.

feel important.  They don't mean to do harm - but the harm does not
interest them.	 Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they
are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves."
