  1. I have seen this lady at Mills College concerts – in the 2005-06 school year, clearly. THis story horrifies me. Good God. Makes me grateful I haven’t been flying recently. SFO is my local airport.

  2. I totally agree. This absurdist outrage makes us look like utter lobotomized buffoons. It is this sort of crazy through-the-looking-glass behavior that prompts Western Europeans particularly, and people throughout the world, to understandably conclude we’re a bunch of paranoid yahoos. As a big fan of Elgar, and British classical music generally, I can attest with fair certainty that there are no jihadist sentiments buried in the music (or the libretto in the choral stuff).

    I think I’ll double-check though. Ya know, there is something in Elgar’s expression, from old portraits I’ve seen in those CD filler sleeves of his music, that might remind me just slightly (just a tiny tad) of Bin Laden. So, when it comes to an Elgar expert like this British musicologist. You can never be too careful!

  3. If the government gives “Third Reichs” rights to security officers they eventuially begin to behave like Nazis.

    Well Americans should not be wining in future of the few tourists and more importantly of the lack of talented people coming to study to USA. Good thing for European universities and industry. 🙂

  4. “They suggested that perhaps a jilted lover or envious colleague might have written a poison pen letter about her to immigration authorities….”

    Keep this in mind. Anonymous denunciations, for the most trivial of reasons, can harm anyone.
