From the strange but true department: The Colbert Report ran this segment yesterday about photographer Duane Kerzic. The story itself is oldish (December 2008) but it basically boils down to this: a photographer was taking photos for Amtrak’s annual “Picture our Trains” photography contest and was arrested by Amtrak police for taking photos of, um, trains.
You can read Duane’s version of events here. Amtrak has been having this contest for several years now. Enter at your own risk.
