A passenger was seized by cabin crew today as he attempted to enter the cockpit on an American Airlines flight from the US to Argentina today…

I don’t think this is anything al-Quaida related, but I thought it was worth the post. [MetaFilter]

This points out exactly how everyone has gone nuts since 9-11. The same kind of incidents have always happend, but before now they weren’t considered newsworthy. I really don’t believe that things are more dangerous now than they were before 9-11. All it did was wake us up to dangers that were there all along but we chose to ignore.
