Methuen: Home of the Paranoid

What a sad, paranoid world we live in. As I was taking a few boring pictures of Route 93 from the overpass in Methuen, a police officer pulled up beside me and said that someone called in reporting that I was on the bridge with a gun. Obviously, the cop realized that I was not a gun-toting-terrorist but merely a camera-toting-Richard Reid-look-a-like. Seriously, how could someone mistake a camera with tripod for a gun? (luckily, the cop didn't notice that my tripod converts into a bazooka which uses my telephoto lens as a targeting system and fires miniature rockets that I store in my bum.) Afterall, I was wearing a Transformers T-Shirt, and everyone knows that Robots are dangerous.
