Airport Security: Ban!

In class we discuss new vocabulary words. Yesterday one of them was ban, also, banned.
The topic turned to airport security.
A student told me about his airport security experience. Looking up from his electronic dictionary, he told me, "They sequestered my toothpaste."

I love the usage I hear everyday, it's fun.

Also, I learned that up until around 1995 Japanese comic books were banned in South Korea, along with other media and entertainment. There is still a ban of Japanese singing on the airwaves. A Japanese band has to sing in English or Korean.
