Harry Potter and the Half-wit Security

How is this for stupidity? Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling had a run-in with airport security over the unpublished manuscript for the next Harry Potter novel. What do they think the terrorists are going to do? Threaten people with paper cuts? Read to them with menaces?

Rowling refused to be separated from the manuscript, so they agreed to allow her on the plane, with the dangerous sheets of paper secured with ... rubber bands. Because terrorists might kill people, but they wouldn't dare remove official TSA elastic bands without permission.
