No, but if I had somewhere to go, I would not hesitate to fly on 9/11.

Flying 9/12 to Vegas with fiance. She is pretty nervous. I am very comfortable because security at Newark Airport is very tight. I will be wearing my FDNY hat!

not to scare anyone but national average is like over 50% of stuff can be snuck through. well, maybe somewhere it is 100 and where you are flying out, it is only 1%

Just called the airllines to confirm travel. They said to be there 2hrs ahead of departure time due to increased security.

Well at least I will feel secure while I sleep, because I had to get up at 3am to make the flight

Goin' to Memphis tomorrow. Not worried--security and awareness will be very high.

The bad part about tomorrow is that a full year has gone by and we are still fighting, watching over our shoulders and we don't yet know where Osama is.
