i've had similar experiences at heathrow--well, i've never actually been
carried out on the tarmac--but i have had them, very politely, ask me to
open up my bad so they could inspect the contents of my film bags.  they
actually said that, so obviously they knew what they were before from what
they saw on the x-ray machine.

i'm heading to south padre island, TX--which has been struck by its own
tragedy, the collapse of the bridge that connects it to the mainland--and
i've decided to take ONLY my M6, 50 summicron, and film.  i'm not even
taking a tripod, so i'll be unable to shoot anything after dark.  that's okay.
