AP Reporter Sees Bo Diddley In Airport, Decides It’s A Terror Story


Perhaps the biggest non-story story in Associated Press history?

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Bo Diddley was traveling light, just like other passengers who couldn’t bring liquids or gels on flights because of new anti-terrorism rules.

The 77-year-old singer-musician didn’t have carryon items when he passed through security Thursday at Gainesville Regional Airport. But Diddley said he’d already left his most important item in a city where he was stopping on his way to a concert in Canada.

“My guitar is in New York,” he said.
