Man, I really hate that Bin Laden dude, if only for the utter shit that some Americans keep spewing since 911. Sure, having a planeful of amateurs hold a shootout at 10,000 feet is a much better option than having proper security checks on domestic flights. And I'm not talking about the paranoid and publicity-stuntish "what have you got in that tooth-filling ma'am, and was your grandfather a commie" stuff that has been instituted since. The rest of the civilised world has had decent pre-flight checks on all flights for decades, only in the US were these not done, because it was "too expensive" and we couldn't have the government imposing those sorts of restrictions on free enterprise, no sir. What goes around comes around, and exactly the same is true for gun control.
