    I don't care what checks the have to do, as long as I am garanteed to make my flight. I think that's what stresses most of us out, is the long lines that make you feel like you're not going to make the flight and the uncertainty that adds to ones anxiety of travel.

    I hope we continue to fight Al-Qaida, they clearly have no intention of leaving us or our airlines alone.

    Concerning your comments on Europe, I travel some 20-25 times per years throughout Europe, and the US, and always have to pass through stringent security checks. Last month I was in Gothenburg, Sweden and Helsinki, Finland. Hardly the centres of terrorist activities, and yet both had security that does not come up short compared to American Airports that I have used. This monthe will see me in Copenhagen and Athens, and I know I will receive the same checks that you speak of.

    In addition to the London Airports, you will also see full body scanners at other UK airports. This is not taken from spurious reports, but from personal experiences. Please don't run away with the idea that your wonderful country is the only one that is safety conscious. (I love your country and people, but you do sometimes have the feeling that you are the only ones that are fighting the war on terrorism. My own country is right there with you, and it sometimes gets a little galling that many there don't seem to recognise this.)
