God bless New York and its attitude
: Orange-alert hats to ring in the high-security New Year! It is our city’s f.u. to the terrorists.
: Snored on the couch until my son woke me up 10 minutes before midnight; it’s our New Year’s Eve tradition. Survived Dick Clark’s product placement (interviewing M&Ms). Now going back to sleep.
: Happy New Year, my friends.
: But a few security alerts before bed….
: In Washington a jet in from England was detained on the tarmac as passengers were questioned.
: The NY Times reports that a plane from Mexico was sent back.
The American authorities in the last week directed a United States-bound flight from Mexico to turn around in midair and imposed extraordinary security measures on at least six other incoming flights because of terrorist concerns, federal officials said Wednesday.Officials were so concerned about possible attacks on at least five foreign flights that landed in the United States, including one on Wednesday night at Dulles International Airport outside Washington, that they moved the planes away from the main terminals and rescreened the passengers.
