Here’s a brief article about musician/poet Henry Rollins and his experience with paranoia during a recent tour. A too-nosy-for-his-own-good flying companion noticed that Rollins was reading Ahmed Rashid’s book Jihad, and reported to the Australian authorities that Rollins was “a possible threat.” Rollins wrote this in reply to the would-be anti-terrorists:
Please tell your government and everyone in your office to go fuck themselves. Tell them twice. If your boss is looking for something to do, you can tell him I suggest he go fuck himself. Baghdad's safer than my hometown and your PM is a sissy. You have a nice night.
Rollins posted the details on this dispatch from his website.
