Paul Karl Lukacs Was Detained by the Feds for Not Answering Questions

Paul Karl Lukacs:

“Why were you in China?” asked the passport control officer, a woman with the appearance and disposition of a prison matron.

“None of your business,” I said.

Her eyes widened in disbelief.

“Excuse me?” she asked.

“I’m not going to be interrogated as a pre-condition of re-entering my own country,” I said.

This did not go over well.

Don’t miss the follow-up, either. (Via Jonathan Wight.)
