love it or leave it, she with the deadly bite
quick is the blue tongue, forked as lighting strike
shining with brightness, always on surveillance
the eyes, they never close, emblem of vigilance
-- Don't Tread on Me, Metallica (1991)

Big news from the front lines of the So-Called War Against Terror:
Metallica frontman James Hetfield was denied entry into Luton airport yesterday, when security officials pulled him over.

The rocker was prevented from leaving the airport terminal once he got off the plane because of his 'Taliban-like beard', The Times [of London] reports.

After a brief interrogation in which Hetfield explained he was in a world-famous rock band, officials apparently let him go.
Actually, if I were forced to chose between backwards religious sects, I think James' beard looks a bit more "Amish" than "Taliban".
