Weblog account of shoe bombing

posted by Jason Kottke   Dec 28, 2001

A first-hand account of the attempted shoe bombing earlier this week: "The staff get his shoes off (we wonder why?), his bag, his passport, maybe some drugs. Strong men are chosen to restrain him (they are relieved later on). The captain announces that we will be landing at Boston instead of Miami and that we'll be escorted by fighter pilots." via bb.
