“Real Artists Ship”

Colin Johnson’s blog


Whilst sitting in a café at St. Pancras this evening, I noticed that a couple of seats down from me there was a half-open messenger bag. This is precisely the sort of thing that the security announcements are urging us to report. However, before I could do anything about this, the following thought sprung fully-formed into my mind: “I can see a MacBook Pro sticking out of the bag; surely, an Apple user wouldn’t be a terrorist”. Fortunately, a few seconds later the owner of the bag came along, thus relieving me of the tension between my seemingly limbic Apple-fanboyism and my sense of duty that I should report this “suspicious package”.
