Political Correctness is going to be America's demise no doubt about it

Minetas resignation

Yes, I had a similar experience. I was in the 10 item express lane at the
market, and an obviously middle eastern gentleman in front of me had ELEVEN
items !

Frozen in terror, I tried to dial my cell phone without attracting attention.....

The article is indeed alarming. Your attempt at humor/sarcasm is out of
place.

What's out of place is being alarmed just because someone on the Internet
somewhere tells a completely uncorroborated story.

In which way other than regarding the mental state of the author?

That's nothing compared to the terrifying experience I had. I was in a
market recently when some fellow as blatently American as Timothy McVeigh
was making surreptitious attempts to dial his cell phone, just like the
devices used in the Madrid bombing.

Jeez SFM, how dense are you? It was an airliner right? I'm sure, willing
to bet money, that they filed IFR and there's your connection. Try harder
to keep up ;-)
