you'd be amazed what an "official looking" laminated card with your picture
on it will get you past.

a friend of mine has one made up with PRESS written on it, his picture and
some other mumbo-jumbo and he can carry a camera and walk right through
police/fire lines with very little problem.

however, this may not work as well after the recent incidents in nyc.....

i have one that gets me back into closed areas when the civil authorities
have mandated evacuation (hurricane) and it merely mentions an agency with
no authority at all (but an impressive looking seal). i actually will need
to get back into "closed to the public" areas should the big one come a
visitin' (systems admin and i live on an island on the atlantic).

i'd say go for it. officials love official looking things......
