NY LaGuardia suspect frequented piano store
(AP) – 6 hours ago

NEW YORK — The man accused of causing a bomb scare that shut down LaGuardia Airport is described as a "brilliant" classical pianist.

Scott McGann was a frequent visitor at Beethoven Pianos in Manhattan, where he rented a piano for $15 an hour. He was there Friday, a day before he was arrested.

The store's marketing manager, Perry Fellwock, said the "brilliant" pianist was "always welcome" there.

Fellwock tells the New York Daily News: "He's not a terrorist. ... We all know him."

McGann is accused of carrying a phony bomb into LaGuardia on Saturday, forcing the airport to be closed for several hours.

McGann was charged with placing a false bomb in a transportation facility and making a terrorist threat. He's undergoing a psychiatric evaluation before his Thursday court appearance.

No description of the phony bomb. I wonder if it's something like a digital device that makes tick tick tick ding tick tick tick ding sounds. That's too much like a bomb timer, isn't it? laugh

The gist of the story is that you can rent a piano at $15/hour at Beethoven's. I wonder what brand. I had no idea that was possible and I am in the neighborhood more or less..

Betelgeuse, baby!
Beware! Forget racial profiling -- airports all around the world will clamp down hard on suspected classical pianists. Zimerman's woes will be nothing in comparison!

Die Stockfisch bleiben dicke,
Die Karpfen viel fressen,
Die Predigt vergessen.

Die Predigt hat g'fallen.
Sie bleiben wie alle.
