Seen in a paper while waiting for teriyaki:

    WASHINGTON - Two U.S. passenger jets made unscheduled landings Wednesday during a tense day of false alarms and heightened security for federal authorities on alert for possible terrorist attacks.
    Northwest Airlines Flight 979, traveling from Memphis to Las Vegas, was diverted to Fort Smith, Ark., after the flight crew became suspicious about the actions of a male passenger.
    Federal investigators said that flight attendants became concerned after the man carried a shaving kit into a bathroom and then spent what the attendants considered to be an unusually long time in the bathroom.
    After the man came out, the captain of the Northwest Airbus A320 ordered the jet's bathrooms locked and decided to land in Fort Smith, FBI spokesmen said.
    The jet, carrying 94 passengers and a crew of five, landed at Fort Smith Regional Airport at 9:55 a.m. CDT.
    The man and a male companion were being questioned by authorities late Wednesday, along with two other men on the flight who other passengers mistakenly believed were traveling with them.
    Federal prosecutors had not decided whether any charges would be filed.

Filed for WHAT?

Being a slow shaver?

Being the *friend* of a slow shaver?

Being someone who people THOUGHT - MISTAKENLY - might be the friend of a slow shaver?

COME ON, people!

(The really amusing part is that, considering how he's spending an "unusually long time in the bathroom", it's quite possible that what he went in there to do wasn't related to shaving at all.)
