Follow-up on old post about Star Simpson

A year ago, I wrote about an episode at Boston Airport, where MIT Star Simpson was arrested for wearing a device that made the paranoid people in the airport believe it was a bomb.

Just the other day, I was wondering what had come out of that story.

Well, as luck would have it, Boing Boing had an interview with her yesterday, in which she tells her side of the story, and we get to hear what happened to her.

I still think it's one of the worst examples of over-reaction I've seen, and I'm glad that she seems to be holding up.

Via Sara, who comments on the racial aspects of this story.
