To return to the world of tangents... what concerns me is how easy the planes were to hijack. It seems that at least one short term solution is to begin to post an armed police officer (with incredible background credentials) on all commercial flights for now on. Knives are always going to get onto planes - but there's no reason that they should be a threat.

An even larger concern is how intelligent the planning of these attacks were. Once we do ensure that planes can no longer be used as weapons, whoever organized this seems too capable to find an equally horrific alternative.

God bless America and the world.
