Let me say publicly that DonBoy’s answer exudes a combination of intuitive genius and confidence that make me think DonBoy is going to do big things in his life. -- Steven D. Levitt (Freakonomics blog)

Went to the Fleet again today; full security is in place, and I was "wanded" about half a dozen times between entering and exiting at various checkpoints. My traveling companion got her bag searched for several minutes, while agents tried to find the piece of metal shaped like a blade that showed up on the airport-style bag-x-ray-er. Nothing found, we went about our business.
Which leads one to wonder why the DNC's gift basket for media members included a Mach3 razor which can't get through the security screening. Oops.
In other news, the saga of the Al-Jazeera booth continues: their skybox sign is gone, as reported by the Boston Herald, although my insider's version has it that the sign "mysteriously got lost" by the DNC and that ABC, AJ's sponsor, is "demanding an investigation", with everyone understanding nevertheless that it ain't coming back.
