JEREMY WRIGHT, a Canadian who created and writes, a business and technology blog, was arrested at the U.S.-Canadian border by American immigration officials who did not believe that Wright was coming to the United States to discuss business opportunities related to his blog with a well-known media company. According to BoingBoing, Wright was arrested after he was asked what his profession was, and he said, "Blogger." They detained him, grilled him with questions, and subjected him to a strip search. Then, having finished humiliating him for the crime of making a living from his blog, they sent him back to Canada and banned him from the United States.
