I don't know how I missed this tragically funny story about American immigration agents spreading the love, Homeland Security-style:
Erkki Maattanen, a filmmaker for Finnish Public Television who accompanied the musicians on the September trip, said his questioners seemed to think the entourage was smuggling drugs or intending to work without a permit. "I kept trying to tell them why we were here, but they'd just yell, 'Shut up!"' he said.
Ladies and gentlemen, your taxpayer dollars are hard at work.
