Rebecca Hains is the lady whose cupcake was confiscated by a TSA supervisor at the Las Vegas airport because its frosting was a "gel." The story broke here, and has gone nationwide, as a grieving land shakes its head in sorrow for the departed and dead principle of common sense.
Rebecca sez, "Thanks again for sharing my cupcake confiscation story! Some friends and I just posted a fun CUPCAKE TERROR video to YouTube.

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
