    Not surpringly, reports of heightened security threats on/around 9/11:

    BBC: NYPD Chief Warns of 9/11 Threat
    Channel 4: "Credible" terror threat for 9/11

    These are just a couple...but just about about every news agency has a related story to this type of issue. I think that many are more vigilant (i.e. failed Times Square incident), but it's still more probably to die in a car accident than a terror attack.

    The problem is, even if there is a credible threat, the US Government has cried wolf one too many times (well, pretty much continuously for the past 10 years actually) and no one is in a mood to listen to them anymore. There's a lesson to be learned here and it's one our mothers taught us at a very young age.

    I think many often feel like it's a case of Chicken Little...yet the sky never falls.

    I have a trip this weekend. Normally would have flown on on Sunday, but I was afraid of a group that would inflict an even higher level of harm than they have already done.

    The group I'm referring to is the TSA.
