    Let me guess: someone will shortly come out with a statement that this was just an accident and not related to any act of terrorism.

    Hey, here whenever there is any incident with mass transit, someone comes out and says "it was an accident and not terrorism." Good Lord in heaven, I HATE that!

    And BTW, agencies other than DHS/TSA have now begun to use the phrase "out of an abundance of caution" to cover their asses when taking an action that has a negative impact on the general public.

    Watch it, I'm bitchy tonight......

    Do they improve the reception? I've been wondering if I should supplement my hat.

    I might be a bit of a snob, but I won't wear anything less than a high quality aluminum hardhat.

    Okay, but make sure the shiny side is out.

    More likely the clerks being on the jetway was the cause of the collapse. There is, after all, a limit to how much weight even a well-engineered structure can take.

    Especially when there are thousands of them standing around on the jetway.

    Yeah, if you get to many of them, you reach critical mess. No, that's not a typo. Just go to any physics text section on nuclear fission and substitute "moron" for "neutron".
