Cat Stevens sparks US plane alert

BBC NEWS: Cat Stevens sparks US plane alert

And they diverted him to the emergency field of choice, lovely Bangor, Maine! It was the lead story on the news up here in the Pine Tree State, ayuh. Cat Stevens detained in Bangor (most people would prefer Guantanamo.)

We are so starved of entertainment options up here in the great North Woods that some among the Maineacs sort of hoped that his detention was a wacky stunt designed to kick off his return to touring. Instead he was deported, apparently for being a famous muslim who enjoys free speech. Oh well; I guess its back to being the diversion airport for drunken British tourists suffering air rage for Bangor International.
