Have I mentioned that I know a young gentleman with a middle-eastern sounding name whose name turned up on a watch list and had to show his face to an SFPD officer the last time he was travelling internationally?
And this past weekend, he's taken up a new hobby--rocketry, building, with a person who is a Pakistani citizen, his first model rocket and turning up for a launch with the Livermore Unit of the National Association of Rocketry [www.lunar.org].
Do you think this gentleman should be checked out by the FBI? The DHS? Kept on a watch list? Interrogated to make sure he's not up to something funny?
Would it help if I told you that said gentleman was born on April 12, 2000 in New York city? [http://alijamal.blogspot.com]
