paranoia in the USA

If you speak another language, not English, at an American airport (cat meows are exempt), don't.

You might get detained and questioned.

A passenger at Seattle's Sea-Tac airport was reported as suspicious because he spoke Tamil on his cell phone.

The off-duty airline employee who reported him is an idiot. Tamil sounds nothing like Arabic. And in any case, not all Arabic speakers are terrorists.

When my human returned home from work, Neil also came over, but only for a few minutes. He approved of the furniture re-arrangement.

Emily came over this evening. Woohoo! It was for a noodle dinner. She is a noodle addict. I spent some time on her lap which was great.
