There is a document called "The Photographer's Right" 
http://www.krages.com/ThePhotographersRight.pdf which I carry whenever 
photographing in public places.  Have never had to use it myself, but know 
others who have, when hassled by over-zealous security at some buildings in 
Chicago as well as the oil refinery in Joliet.
