Notes on the San Fran rampage

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 31, 2006 05:30 PM

Readers, you know of my strong views and work debunking the “myth of the lone Muslim avenger;” reporting on the rash of “lone” Muslim shooters who have murdered Americans; and combating P.C. whitewashing of jihad. Most recently, I’ve extensively covered the Jeep Jihadi Mohammed Taheri-Azar in North Carolina and Seattle’s Jew-hating killer Naveed Haq. But […]

Bill Nienhuis asks an interesting question: WHY ARE GLOBAL POSITIONING SATELLITE DEVICES (GPS) STILL ALLOWED (POST-9/11) ON MOST AIRLINES? I scream this because returning from a cross-country vacation with my family yesterday, I spent five minutes explaining that the 2 oz.
