Try and look at the bright side NannyJo. Anyone requiring the media to provide plans for a weapon will more than likely manage to blow themselves up before they can hurt anyone.

In fact it might not be a bad idea to put a couple of "bugged" plans out there.

Well, I am back! The only problem I saw flying over there was my wife got stopped at the security check point because of those darned bells! She removed her necklace (forgot she had it on) still ringing. She took some coin out of her pocket (forgot they were there), still ringing! At this time, they pulled her aside and took out the wand! I watched with growing apprehension that I was going to MISS my reunion NOT because of some terrorist, but because my WIFE was taken to jail! LOL, as it turned out, my wife was wearing these HUGE earrings that she had forgotten about! Once she took those off, no more beeping! So, we headed towards the reunion!
     Of course, the reunion was GREAT fun! Everyone there looked EXACTLY like they did 20 years ago, except for a few more Bald men, and a few more pounds here and there! It was a great time! However, it was also a very tiring time! Even with A/C, the temp was still over 90 degrees INDOORS!! Not to mention it was over 100 degrees OUTSIDE AFTER dark!
    Anyway, I am home now! 
    By the way, I can't speak to how other states are, but the guard in the two airports I was in were carrying M-16s as the rifle to protect us, however, MY trained military eye noticed immediately a lack of an actual loaded weapon! Not a single rifle had a singe clip! Of course, there could have been a single cartridge chambered, but still, these are NOT full-time soldiers, these are week-end soldiers, ONCE a month weekend soldiers! Don't get me wrong, they are doing a great thing, I just don't the point of having EMPTY weapons at the airport when IF they were needed, it would have been quite a while before any firepower could be brought to bear! Having the military at the airports is a great idea; having empty weapons is not! If they could not get the supplies to the various bases in time, fine! Hand out the smaller sidearms! Those are easier to hide that they have no bullets, a rifle like the M-16 is quickly accessible as to whether or not that rifle is loaded!

And this is yet ANOTHER reason I think journalist ought to be CENSORED!!!!

 

 

 WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Bush administration efforts to screen U.S.-bound cargo for radioactive weapons are unlikely to stop a determined militant group from smuggling nuclear material onto American soil, experts said on Thursday.

 

Peter Zimmerman of Kings College, London, and Jeffrey Lewis of Harvard, who have researched the task of building an improvised nuclear device, said anyone hoping to hatch a nuclear attack on the United States would most likely build the weapon on American soil.

 

That would require them to smuggle highly enriched uranium from abroad. But packaging material as common as aluminum foil could shield the uranium from scanning devices meant to detect radioactivity.

 

 

Let's be sure, if they didn't already know, that EVERY terrorist in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD know exactly how to sneak stuff through customs without worrying about getting caught!!!
