“Grammy Gordon,” the feisty Grandmother in a Wheelchair Who Decked Six Airport Security Guards-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

The story is of an 83-year-old grandmother named Ruth “Grammy” Gordon who is confined to a wheelchair.  She got into a scuffle with six security guards at an airport and got the upper hand on all of them.  She objected to being pulled aside for a search when, as she put it, “…they were letting guys who looked just like terrorists walk through without searching them…” 

The Truth:

This is a piece of fiction written by Bob Wallace that is posted at www.lewrockwell.com.  Apart from the fact that the story sounds too good to be true, there are some clues that it is not real.  In the original version of the story, the incident is described as having happened in Frostbite, Minnesota at the R.J. Squirrel airport.  Frostbite doesn’t exist except as the fictional home of Rocky The Flying Squirrel and Bullwinkle Moose.  Rocky’s full name is Rocket J. Squirrel.  Also, there does not appear to be an “Ohio Express University” as is named in the story or a book about “Cat Stevens Declawed.”
