There are many heroes…the rescue workers in NY, WA and PA (especially the police and fire people who gave their lives to help others). The media tends toward overkill but I'm surprised that I haven't even heard anyone speculate as to what might have gone on in the flight that crashed in PA. Passengers…flight crew…somebody prevented that plane from reaching its destination and killing more.
There are no easy solutions but I think that every US airport should be considered a US border with security staffed by US Marshals. There's nothing worse than the false sense of security that the current system gave us.
Does anyone care to share his or her thoughts?
