My favorite is the last bullet on #5, but read it all. A good plan.

Washington Times – EDITORIAL: Guns on a plane
After the September 11 attacks, commercial airline pilots were allowed to carry guns if they completed a federal-safety program. No longer would unarmed pilots be defenseless as remorseless hijackers seized control of aircraft and rammed them into buildings.
Now President Obama is quietly ending the federal firearms program, risking public safety on airlines in the name of an anti-gun ideology.
The Obama administration this past week diverted some $2 million from the pilot training program to hire more supervisory staff, who will engage in field inspections of pilots.
Well, now I feel safer. Those renegade professional pilots won’t be armed any more. What a relief.
Grand Rounds are up.
I stopped doing the weekly announcements, as some months it looked like that was all I did here. There’s a link in the left upper sidebar to find the Grand Rounds through Dr. Val’s place.
I have installed a plugin for WordPress that displays the blog contents on the iPhone on a more user-friendly way. If you don’t like it you can click the link at the very bottom of the page and get the full view.
I’d be interested in iPhone users’ comments.
