Bea afraid, Bea very afraid

This I just love: makes me miss the Golden Girl's wacky adventures...

IN THE WORLD of terrorism, there's al Queda, there's the Chechnyan rebels...

And then there's Maude.

Bea Arthur sparked a security scare at Logan Airport in Boston this week when she tried to board a Cape Air flight with a pocketknife in her handbag.

The "Golden Girls" star, now 81, was flagged by a Transportation Security Administration agent, who discovered the knife - a strict no-no following 9/11.

"She started yelling that it wasn't hers and said 'The terrorists put it there,' " a fellow passenger said. "She kept yelling about the 'terrorists, the terrorists, the terrorists.' "

After the blade was confiscated, Arthur took a keyring from her bag and told the agent it belonged to the "terrorists," before throwing it at them.

As she boarded the plane, she told the TSA employees, "We're all doomed."

A spokeswoman for Cape Air says, "Miss Arthur was cracking jokes and was a real character."
