UPDATE: He’s been identified: Auburn grad Brandon Wright from Chicago, and he says he specifically asked the photographer to make sure the AU logo was in the shot. Which is awesome.
When The Wall Street Journal needed a photo of person least likely to raise the suspicion of robots charged with airport security for a front page story, they obviously went with an Auburn Man. (Because Auburn only has terrorist ties in video games.)
A man wearing an Auburn hoodie or something can be seen having his fingerprints scanned at a security counter in a WSJ story on the increasing popularity of biometric identification measures in the world’s airports.
Can anyone ID this police state poster child?
(I know keeping folks safe on airplanes does not a police state make… just didn’t want to waste that alliteration. You know how I roll.)

The photographer was a big sports fan… We chatted about the Unbelievable Georgia and Bama games. I actually asked him to make sure the AU was visible… 🙂
That’s awesome, Brandon. Thanks!

They owed us this after begging us pre-Iron Bowl to bring down the Crimson Tide and saving college football from the fatigue of too much Bama. Nice work Brandon!
