    Mike Figgis: that TSA "shoot a pilot" thing was bogus

    " Jonathan Mitchell from Public Radio International tells BoingBoing, Regarding the Mike Figgis LAX story, it's not true. We were thinking of reporting this story on a radio show I work on, so we did a little fact checking. We contacted Figgis' publicist, and got this email from Mike Figgis himself."

    Like many of the exaggerated wide-eyed panic "urban" myths that circulate as fact these days.
    Too many folks use whatever thy find that proves their point of view independent of the factual basis.
