    of course it depends on your definition of detention, however teh TSA reports that "Paul was escorted out of the screening area by local law enforcement."

    any time you are escorted some place by law enforcement, especially when it is in the oposite direction to your desired destination, you have been detained.

    My big complaint is not that he was bing a Jerk, I sort of expect it of him, its that he has the power to prevent this and choses not to use that power.  He is a sitting US senator, who can no tbe detained, he can also put a hold on any expenditure for the very machines he objects to.

    there is only one reality, republicans just forget at times
