It was cinematic magic when a dying John Foster Kane uttered the famous word, “Rosebud,” as he let fall the snow globe down the stairwell shattering it into scores of broken pieces. Officials at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, aren’t movie buffs it seems. When a TSA employee spotted the suspicious orb in some checked baggage she alerted State Police who evacuated the terminal. Once it was determined that Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was submerged in water and glitter, instead of nitroglycerine, order was restored and flights were again whisking their way to all parts of the real globe.
