False PositivesWe are going to have a few of those and it seems air passengers are enforcing some.
And air marshals some others.
I know I would be nervous sitting on a flight watching any kind of odd behaviour. Even just waggish, as might have been the case in the first story. And right now I might see fit to stop a flight because of that nervousness.
These could all be false positives (the "30 sminutes to live" could be a mishearing, passing around cellphones could be showing off pictures). And the problem is one can have false negatives too. And these are greater disasters.
One blog I have learned a lot from looks at this in a different, but also important, area.
