today Laura Bush is in town (cincinnati, ohio). i work in a large office building where she happened to be staying. the place was swarming with CIA agents all day, and roads were closed, etc..
i came out from work to go home to find 6 CIA agents and 2 Bomb Squad agents investigating my moped. they had the seat lifted up (its a grande, btw) and were checking out my bicycle sized "fix-a-flat" canister. also they were looking around inside the right side cover and poking my tires with some sort of apparatus.
i walked up to the crowd and asked if i could help any of them. they said a passerby voiced her concern about the <a href="http://www.mopedarmy.com/photos/events/mabbq6/24/">bomb decal</a> on my headlight. so, they were treating my moped as though it were a bomb. i explained that the bomb on the headlight was just a sticker and posed no real threat.
the agents were very nice though.. and understanding. after questioning me my entire life story (well.. name, address, d.o.b,, etc) that he already knew.. one of the agents informed me that i had a traffic habius on my moped for some reason and suggested i be careful so i dont get pulled over and find out what its about...
..i dont remember ever getting any parking tickets on it, though. maybe ill call and find out what thats all about.
