Delta Sigma Theta's "explosive"(?) new book

Apparently, a book given to Delta Sigma Theta members triggers TSA alarms and resulted in a back up at Hobby Airport in Houston.

What is IN those books?!

http://abc13.com/travel/travelers-st...-hobby/893514/

"A particular book passed out at the Delta Sigma Theta sorority conference triggered security alarms. Almost every passenger who attended the conference had a copy of that book in their checked luggage. When the alarms were triggered, the bags had to be manually inspected. In addition, a few TSA machines broke. That combined with the sheer volume of travelers created the perfect storm for delays."

Every time my daughter has thick books in her luggage, her luggage has the sticker on it that it has been searched. I think it creates a barrier so thick the x-ray can't see through it.
