Sitting in my living room last night, watching the many planes coming in over Brooklyn on their way to LaGuardia airport for landing, I started to think that my fears about taking a vacation overseas next month are probably completely unfounded. Thousands of airplanes take off and land perfectly safely every day. And, should any attempt be made to attack or blow up an airliner on the occasion our president starts chucking bombs in Middle East, there is an extraordinarily slim chance that this will directly affect me. But, would the potential alone allow me to fully enjoy my vacation?
