14559 ª February 7 9:18 AM. Attempted hijack of United Airlines flight to Argentina…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.

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.
