    For some reason, I lost the article before I completed it (piece of crap work computer).

    That is terrifying. No one decided to look in the McDonalds bag before this guy boarded the flight?

    I'll be flying cross-country for the first time in years in 19 days. You can bet your ass I'll be scoping for suspicious activity. Call me a racial profiler or what-have-you, but I'll be looking for Middle Eastern people in particular. last time I checked, the Asians werent looking to blow us out of the sky.

    There are those who would say that this whole story was based on racial profiling. Then again, it is not 80 year old little Irish nuns who seem to be carrying implements for IEDs. Hmmm, given that, whom should we be looking for?

    Did anyone write down that Flight number before the link was lost? Id like to do some research on this and check its validity...

    I don't understand that, when I took a flight from Chicago back to my air station in North Carolina I had a small paper bag that had twinkies and chocolate milk in it and the screeners made me empty the whole damn bag.

    kind of embarassing to dump your twinkies and milk on the security table.....at age 22. :eek:
