One wrong direction for boy bands and their girl fans

The other evening I was standing outside Logan Airport, waiting for the Silver Line near Terminal E, when an entourage of burly security types suddenly hustled by, followed by a horde of screaming preteen girls.

All of them were headed toward a bus, parked quietly at one end of the terminal, on which the members of the British/Irish boy band One Direction were deposited, out of reach of the girls, in advance of their Tuesday show at Mohegan Sun. A State Police officer told me he had snuck the boys out a side door, but the girls had discovered them anyway. Something about the pheromones, maybe.
