Airport unnerved by agency's hooded mob
Apparently the cops in El Segundo, Calif., found something vaguely suspicious about this staff photo shoot for agency David&Goliath. I can't imagine why. During the shoot on a parking structure rooftop, three police cars approached the crowd and told them to cease and desist, apparently because their flash photography was interfering with the nearby LAX air traffic control tower and incoming planes. "It was quite a scene," an agency press release said, "a clan of 110 hooded soldiers surrounded by smoke and cop cars." The agency was also sternly chided for its habit of pelting and decapitating neighborhood giants.
