Terror Levels Raised

As I go to bed tonight, it's with the discomforting news that Britain has raised its terror level from "severe" to "critical," indicating it believes an attack is imminent, after it has already broken up an airplane bombing plot. No hand luggage will be allowed on any flights leaving the U.K.

Sky News, via Fox News Channel, indicates the foiled plot in England was to blow up at least 20 aircraft.

The United States has also raised the threat level for airline flights between the U.S. and Britain. Carry-on luggage and "liquids" are prohibited for all flights between the two countries.

Sounds like law enforcement in the U.K. has done an outstanding job thus far.

FReepers are monitoring developments.

This is a good night to say some extra prayers for our country and our great ally, Britain, as well as for those planes already in the air from England to United States. David Asman reports on Fox there are planes in the air that may be "of concern."

Alarming as all heck, eh? Sure those Egyptians are just lost on their way to school. You bet.

I'm a bit bleary-eyed this morning, I ended up watching the TV coverage into the wee hours...
