I was shocked they didn't stop all truck traffic nationwide on 9/11. Would have been the responsible thing to do based on some terrorist in Pakistan who would have no motivation at all to lie to the CIA.

Eventually I fear I'll be going to jail for beating the living snot out of some obnoxious busy body who sees something and says something and I miss my connection or vacation because of it.

I swear if I was on this flight, I would have walked over and cracked my shoe over her head for this.

I promise to start the collection for your bail.

While I really hope I'm never on a flight that gets diverted, I would really like to be interviewed afterwards. They probably wouldn't use my comments though. I would let them know where to stick their abundance of caution.

In their case, it would probably fit with plenty of "room" to spare. Right along side of their heads....
