The Former Cat Stevens Gets Plane Diverted

I was a bit shocked to day to find in my news reader the following headline: The Former Cat Stevens Gets Plane Diverted – a story that, so far, only appears to be making news in Kansas City.

A London-to-Washington flight was diverted to Maine on Tuesday when it was discovered passenger Yusuf Islam – formerly known as singer Cat Stevens – was on a government watch list and barred from entering the country, federal officials said.

Welcome to the United States of America. Pacifism, in any form, will not be tolerated.
