Passenger pulled off airline after doodling about unfounded fears of terrorism

From The Age (Australia):

Oliver Buckworth, 28, claims he was removed from a Gold Coast-bound flight after a fellow passenger saw the contents of his notebook over his shoulder and informed Tiger staff.
“The irony is I was writing a sentence about the absurdity of the fearmongering when we live in such a happy country of ice-cream and beaches and fluffy things,” he said.
A page of Mr Buckworth’s notebook seen by Fairfax Media contains the sentence: “In a land of melting ice-creams, sandy feet and fluffy bears, how could anyone be fearful of terrorism.”

Insane how knee-jerk reactive we’ve become.
