From the files of "What Kind Of Nation Have We Become?" appears this story out of the Las Vegas airport. Rebecca Hains was stopped by the TSA for carrying a cupcake on her flight. The delicious icing, TSA said, was too gel-like and could be the means to a terrorist plot.
The story becomes all the more puzzling when you know that potential terrorist — code name: Becky — flew from Boston to Las Vegas with two cupcakes from Wicked Good Cupcakes of Cohasset. She was able to pass through security out of Boston with no cupcake trouble.
She ate one on the way and saved one for the return trip. Very suspicious.
The crack Las Vegas TSA, however, stopped her and confiscated her cupcake and it’s gel-like icing.
