Video of TSA pat down of girl sparks new debate

A Kentucky couple wants the TSA to change how it screens children after their 6-year-old daughter was frisked at the New Orleans airport.

They posted the video on YouTube.  It happened while the family was headed home from a vacation earlier this month.

The girl's father, Todd Drexel, told Good Morning America that Anna was confused by the search and started crying afterward because she thought she'd done something wrong.

In a statement, the Transportation Security Administration says the officer followed proper procedure but that the agency is reviewing its screening policies.

Evidence of time travel?

An Irish filmmaker thinks he has found evidence of time travel in a Charlie Chaplin movie.

George Clarke says a video from a bonus feature of the DVD to Chaplin's 1928 film "The Circus" shows a woman talking into something she's holding up to her ear.

It appears to be a mobile phone, although they weren't invented until the 1970s.

It's likely the actor is holding a hearing aid, but we won't be the judge.
