After reading about blogger Raed Jarrar's experience at JFK (he was forced to take off a shirt with Arabic writing on it or miss his flight), I finally stopped being depressed about the war on terror and began being proactively pissed off.
I made this shirt, which says "I am not a terrorist" in Arabic. I plan to wear it every time I go to the airport from now on.
On the t-shirt site, Tim says: "All the shirts are set to $1.00 more than the Spreadshirt base price – all profits will be sent to the ACLU."

John's to Toronto in September. I'll let you know.
One thing: are we sure it doesn't say "I've got the mother of all
bombs up my ass, please check"? Cause that would be bad.
black lava, has had a shirt reading the same thing for a while. a muslim friend named mohammad wears the shirt all the time, but leaves doesn't wear it when he's going to fly somewhere. i guess he has enough trouble with the name mohammad. Link
