Good thing I don't use major airports.

Said it before, will say it again: you have a far greater chance of being smucked dead on the Autobahn any day of the week than buying it in a terrorist attack.

That's scary! When I was in Berlin in 2003, one of my not-to-bright traveling companions told a very high Moroccan man on the subway that we were Americans. The guy launched into this rant about he was Osama bin Laden and he was going to kill us all. That's as close as I've ever come to a terrorist attack, and probably wasn't even that close, but we definitely got off at the next stop! I didn't tell my mother about it until last year. (And our friend learned to tell dangerous-looking strangers that he was Canadian...)

Donica told me about this yesterday while she was(is) in Hannover. UGH. It amazes me how many of these they are foiling! Big Brother is watching us!!!

And tomorrow I fly to London from Amsterdam, but don't tell anyone! :)

Well, as my husband would say, you really do not want to mess with the German police. They are . . . efficient. Good thing I don't live anywhere near anything remotely American. There are only about 10 Americans in the entire county!

Just when you thought is was safe to go back in the water......

A little reminder that the world isn't safe from terrorists.
