When I got on a plane in November of 2001 there was a man in the line near me to get seat assignments (it was Southwest) who was acting very nervously. He looked like he could be of Middle Eastern, Arabic, etc. descent. It was more the behavior though than how he looked, for me. But being two months after, honestly, maybe it was a combination of both. I said nothing about it but did I think more than once about it? Yes. Should I be ashamed of myself? Looking back, I tend to think yes. I still think about that, I guess it's a touchstone of sorts. Obviously nothing happened-and he was probably just nervous about the flight too, or maybe about what he might be subjected to? I don't know.

It turned out that the most troublesome passengers for me were the crazy drunk people next to me on the flight home-and the way that the flight attendant just let them buy drink after drink after drink. That turned out to be the scariest part of the flying. But I was watching that cockpit door and that made me nervous, if anyone got anywhere near that.

Ironically the guy was probably nervous because he thought all of his co-passengers were thinking about him maybe being a terrorist.

I think we should write a punchline to go with the title of this thread

None of which I'm too keen on "coexisting" with.
Oh, hey just google up "Christian Dominists" - they're "Bosom Buddies"

Well, I'm not too keen on them taking over the USA either. And they (CD) have way more ins inside to the USA Govt than any Radical/Wahabi-ists Muslims do.

I remember within a very few days after 9-11 there was a march in Brooklyn with Christian, Jews AND Muslims condemning the atrocity. Moderate Muslims out weigh the radicals here in the USA..

But what's going to happen in ohCanada! now that Harper has a majority government without the need to form a coalition government (if I understand the basic Parliamentary System correctly)?

(not making fun of Canada-- thinks it's good country)

A lot of people would be better off smoking weed before getting on a plane. They could chill out or sleep or enjoy the shitty snacks more than they should.

The Sahara casino, oldest casino remaining on the Las Vegas Strip will be closing its doors on May 16.



Another victim of Islamophobia in America.

Damn, will there be nowhere else on The Strip to play $5 blackjack (and not at 2 in the afternoon)? They have that awesome roller coaster I went on with Sicy and beegee when we were in town for the U2 show, too.

It's so far away from the rest of the stuff on The Strip, though. And all the old school casinos just seem to be closing.

*moment of silence*
