Good News Thursday
August 10, 2006 08:05 AM
What good news this morning, we suppose. It does appear a massive terrorist attack has been thwarted. Twenty-one people arrested, and though it has not officially been attributed to al-Qaeda, it certainly has their hallmarks. Apparently the plot was to carry on different explosive components and assemble them on board.
It certainly puts one in mind of the eleven missing Eqyptian students from over the weekend
(most of whom have turned themselves in three of whom have been arrested, two turned themselves in).
Also puts one on mind of this first hand account from a Wall Street Journal Reporter, of a domestic flight she took on June 29, 2004. Quoting excerpts from it simply doesn't do it justice--you have to read the whole thing.
And on a much lighter note, last night's Red's game was one of the best and most exciting sporting events we have ever witnessed. Thank you Bob Castellini!
