Pop quiz!

Salon's 'Ask the Pilot' columnist, Patrick Smith, needed to take some photos for a freelance reporting job. He was shooting those photographs inside the terminals of two airports in New England. What happened next? [Choose one]

  1. Smith was approached by airport officials, congratulated for his interest in air transport, and taken on a personal guided tour of the facility.

  2. Smith's treatment by airport security reminded him of Soviet-era photo restrictions at the Moscow airport.

Extra credit: Take your camera to a local airport and take some of your own pictures. After airport security lets you go, write a 500-word essay on the theme, 'We live in a different world now.'
