The 'new normal' flight experience

Who's Sorry Now?

Ok, if all the terrorist stuff turns out to be real (btw, did you know that NONE of the folks held in the London terror probe had airline tix?), then we're really glad everyone is so vigilant.

However, if this is the idiocy we're going to have to put up with from now on...God help us all! Let's hope this lady gets the help she needs. here

A self-described peace activist responsible for the diversion of a London-to-Washington flight Wednesday acted bizarrely for hours, made references to al Qaeda and hijack training flights, and was restrained by two passengers after she urinated in the aisle. Catherine C. Mayo, 59, a Vermont woman who also lives part time in Pakistan, was charged yesterday in federal court with interfering with a flight crew. United Flight 923 was forced to make an emergency landing at Boston's Logan International Airport under escort by two military jets. "She's got some very serious mental health problems," said Page Kelley, Mrs. Mayo's attorney, who described her client as "just barely lucid."
