ALB puffer story redux

Deirdre Walker's 2009 piece about what happened when she refused "the puffer" at the security checkpoint at ALB was reprised yesterday on tech uber-site Gizmodo, where it's been attracting a lot of attention (obviously, the TSA and airport security are a hot topic right now). [via @EdXeno]

Seconding the above. Albany Youth Soccer. I played for many years with this organization. Absolutely excellent experience. Good mix of fun and hard work. Very diverse group of kids and coaches. Well organized. Many other kids I knew growing up in Albany played as well. In my opinion this is the integral kids sports experience.
