This is getting a wee bit scary, folks… several UPS cargo planes have been isolated and detained after “suspicious packages” from Yemen were detected. The terms “manipulated toner” and “negative for explosives” are being tossed around, making me think atomic/biological concerns. The planes are on the ground in Newark, Philadelphia, and England.
Also, in Portland, Maine, a federal building has been evacuated over a “suspicous package.”
In all our squabbling over our own domestic politics, every now and then we are reminded that there are other issues, bigger issues, that transcend them.
