A List of The Things Found in Yongda Huang Harris' Baggage


Here’s a List of The Things in Yongda Huang Harris’ Baggage. Harris, reportedly of Dorchester, was arrested in Los Angeles after authorities noticed he was wearing a bulletproof vest and flameproof leggings while through going through security at LAX, and that does look kind of suspicious. In his carry-on and/or checked baggage, they found a smoke grenade, a hatchet, knives, three leather-coated lead-filled billy clubs, a gas mask, a Tyvek biohazard suit, leg irons, handcuffs, body bags, a collapsible baton, various masks, duct tape, batteries, oven mitts, cooking tongs, plastic cuffs, and some sort of device to repel dogs.  [Herald]

Jack Welch, Please Exit Stage Left.

Now, I realize my tweets about this matter have been somewhat incendiary. In my first tweet, sent the night before the unemployment figure was released, I wrote: “Tomorrow unemployment numbers for Sept. with all the assumptions Labor Department can make..wonder about participation assumption??” The response was a big yawn.

My next tweet, on Oct. 5, the one that got the attention of the Obama campaign and its supporters, read: “Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers.”

As I said that same evening in an interview on CNN, if I could write that tweet again, I would have added a few question marks at the end, as with my earlier tweet, to make it clear I was raising a question.  [WSJ]
