My biggest question is...with all this high-tech security stuff at airports, not letting ANYONE touch your baggage, going through x-ray machines and metal detectors, etc., how in the hell did these low-life scumbags get on the planes? And as far as computers go, well, that's a whole different story. If a high school kid can hack his way into any computer, you can just imagine(no pun intended Ken
)what someone can accomplish if they really set their mind to an act of terrorism.
I've been here at work at the newspaper since noon and will remain till they say I can leave. I have heard just about every comment, snide remark, opinion, suggestion for tomorrow's headline (after the umpteenth remark about today's date being "911" I finally hung up on someone and started to cry) that I care to hear. I'm waiting to see how long it takes before the crude jokes start.
This is not a joke and no one is laughing. Security everywhere needs to be seriously re-evaluated. In today's society, too many people casually come and go as if they owned the joints, no one bothering to question their business for fear of hurting feelings. Well today, thousands were killed. If that is not a serious wake-up call, I don't know what is.
Ken, you, Sandie and Kylee are more than welcome to come to my house. My thoughts are with you.
