    AP's early releases make no mention of Al-Qaida. Where did the initial report come from?

    I must say, "Do You Realize" tears me up every time I hear it.

    I got it from my local news station's e-alerts, but it attributes the al-Qaida reference to an airport spokesperson.
  8. I'm taking two London-US flights in Sept (one to philly, one to SF)...i'm really not looking forward to either one. In fact, if it weren't for the weddings, etc, that we're going to next month, i would have cancelled it--not because i'm afraid of terrorism, but because i really don't want to deal with the probable delays, stressed/scared fellow travellers mixing emotions and booze, etc......

    I'll suggest flyingo out of Gatwick. I recently dealt with someone flying back and Heathrow just won't be sorted out for a long time.

    You've probably already bought your tickets, but is it possible for you to take the Eurostar and fly out of Paris or Brussels instead? Yes, there's the hassle of getting to those places, but there are fewer restrictions.

    At least he wasn't found with magazines or tangerines.
  12. that's a pretty good idea--not sure how possible it is, but i'm going to definitely look into it....
