  Crackers and water = peace and quiet
Today two aviation stories dominated the regional news. First, was the security breach at PHL that closed terminals B and C and delayed flights for hours. Attemtping to comfort the hundreds of weary passengers (who had to wait standing in line to be re-screened) the City of Philadelphia passed out crackers and bottled water. This evening even though we did not receive the free crackers and water we did however enjoy sitting on the front porch listening to the only the rain and enjoyed the quiet with out the chronic drone of the outbound jets. This was third security event @ PHL in the past few weeks. They (HLS/TSA) have not had to explain how they lost track of the "mircophone bomber" and as a result raided the wrong jet after it landed @ PHL. The passenger was allowed to board a jet from Texas to Alabama last week even though the luggage was coming into PHL? All of this even after the U.S. spends around 5 billion a year on aviation security?

The second comment is the follow-up to the article written titled --PA Judge rules "Airspace/Flight Path Is Not Public Highway". PA finally passed drunk flying legislation so that it's prosecutors (in the future) would not have to go back into court and ask a judge to define that airspace is a public highway in order to prosecute drunk pilots that buzz nuclear reactors. Philadelphia news radio (KYW-1060 am) mentioned that Delaware does not have any law that would protect the public from drunk pilots -- Maybe in Delaware judges/legislators can read dictionaries and understand the obvious that operation of any vehicle in the public right-of-way would warrant a DUI charge. States regulating or defining the meaning of airspace themselves? We can't allow that.
