Allowing electronic devices on airlines is going to cause tragedy.

Virgin Atlantic allows passengers to make cell phone calls 35,000 feet in the sky (click here)

Passengers will be able to send text messages, make a call or access email on mobile devices

NEW YORK — The phrase "Can you hear me now" has entered the jet age.
Passengers on certain Virgin Atlantic flights are now able to use their cell phones to make and receive phone calls at 35,000 feet, the airline announced Tuesday....
The British airline's new service could be a blessing for business travelers who want to stay connected during eight-hour flights across the ocean. It could also be a nightmare for the passenger sitting next to them.
"I suspect most passengers, like myself, would prefer not to listen to somebody on the phone for what might be hours," said airline analyst Robert Mann....

Cell phones or other electronic devices should never be allowed on airlines. They should be required to be placed in the overhead compartments without access by locking them or in the cargo hold. 

How quickly we all forget the very real potential for death at the minds of international criminals and murderers.

At 35,000 feet Virgin Atlantic is hoping if there is a detonation there won't be enough of an explosion to breach the hull of the aircraft. Virgin Galactica has influenced the airlines with elements of danger that should not exist.

Exclusive: UK Terror Plot - Why the bombs failed. (click here)
July 6, 2007
The London bomb plot allegedly planned by a cell of doctors failed early last Friday morning because a medical syringe used as part of the firing mechanism caused a malfunction, ABC News has learned.

According to nonclassified documents reviewed by ABC News, and confirmed by multiple sources, both mobile telephones initiated firing mechanisms rigged inside a Mercedes E 300 parked several yards from the front door of Tiger Tiger nightclub failed despite multiple calls to the cell phones designed to remotely trigger the devices.

Had the fuel-air bombs successfully ignited into a superhot fireball filled with roofing nails, casualties were almost a certainty among the 500 or so patrons who partied late at the 1,700-person occupancy nightclub that perhaps best symbolizes London's vital nightlife scene....

Sincerest condolences to Robert Kennedy, Jr. and his four children at the loss of Mary.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s estranged wife, Mary Richardson Kennedy, (click here) has died at age 52, apparently committing suicide by hanging herself, multiple sources told ABC News.

"We deeply regret the death of our beloved sister Mary, whose radiant and creative spirit will be sorely missed by those who loved her," Mary Kennedy's family said in a statement released through her lawyer. "Our heart goes out to her children who she loved without reservation. We have no further comment at this time."

Bedford, N.Y., police responded to the Kennedy home in Mount Kisco, N.Y., at 1:36 p.m. today to investigate a "possible unattended death," according a news release. While police would not identify the person who died, the house is listed under the names of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Mary Kennedy on property reports....

George Zimmerman should stop airing his dirty laundry in the media.

Florida teenager Trayvon Martin died from a single gunshot wound (click here) to the chest fired from “intermediate range,” according to an autopsy report reviewed Wednesday by NBC News.
The official report, prepared by the medical examiner in Volusia County, Fla., also found that the 17-year-old Martin had one other fresh injury – a small abrasion, no more than a quarter-inch  in size –  on his left ring finger below the knuckle....

Zimmerman should never be out on bail and this is one of the prime reasons. Zimmerman insists on fighting his case in the media. He and/or his attorney are doing their best to taint the jury pool.

I do not believe those injuries occurred the night Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin. The video at the police station shows no broken nose, no facial bruises. Zimmerman after leaving the police station was more emboldened than ever and I believe he had another fight, making the abrasion at the back of head worse and providing facial bruising and a broken nose that didn't exist the night of his murderous rampage against an innocent African American Youth in Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman needs to be recalled before the judge to place him under custody to prevent any more exploitation of the media to taint the jury pool. The media has been mostly busy with out issues and that bothers Zimmerman. He is a man that wants to have control, no different than the control he zealously showed when gunning down Trayvon Martin. The leak is a deliberate act trying to exert control of his IMAGE and forcing his manipulated image onto the public to effect the outcome of his trial.

The media is also being biased. CNN Headline News only told the story of the report from the emergency room the next day and never told the reply by Trayvon Martin's parents. There is bias in the media for sensationalism in this case and it will effect the outcome is this is to continue with Mr. Zimmerman. Slapping him in the wrist and warning him to not do it again will not prevent him from continuing to seek attention to effect his trial. He needs to be in prison so the trial is fairly decided when the prosecution presents evidence to the jury.

The attorney (click here) representing Trayvon Martin's parents said Wednesday a medical report detailing injuries sustained by the man who said he shot Trayvon was leaked to bolster his claims of self-defense.
Lawyer Benjamin Crump said he has not seen the medical report but questions who leaked the information and why.
"It was leaked for a beneficial purpose," he said, "certainly to help George Zimmerman's claim of self-defense."
The medical report detailing George Zimmerman's injuries after he shot and killed Trayvon was first reported by ABC News on Tuesday.
'Zimmerman, 28, is charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting Feb. 26 of Trayvon, an unarmed black 17-year-old, in a gated Sanford community where Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch volunteer....

Republicans won't allow another increase in the nation's debt limit...and NO TAX INCREASES.

Republicans are looking for something to provide a wedge issue for this election season. They are so desperate they are drumming up an issue due to be a legislative priority at the end of the year. This is new? This is a resolve? Same 'ole, same 'ole GOP.

...Boehner issued the warning Tuesday, (click here) declaring, "We shouldn't dread the debt limit. (As a) matter of fact, I think we should welcome it.
Boehner says Republicans won't allow another increase in the nation's debt limit unless it's offset by spending cuts, and no tax increases.
"Allowing America to default on its debt would be irresponsible," he said.
The nation's debt has nearly tripled in the past decade, and now stands at $15.6 trillion.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has predicted the U.S. will hit its current borrowing limit of $16.4 trillion by the end of the year.
Congress will have to raise that limit to avoid a damaging default on the nation's debt payments.
On the campaign trail, Mitt Romney echoed Boehner's hard line, saying, "Washington has been spending too much money, and our new president made things worse."
This is the second time Republicans are demanding deep cuts in exchange for their vote to raise the debt limit....
Who can believe a word the Republicans say? The Republicans in the House and Senate are trying to undo the last round of cuts. When are we going to have a government that actually lives by their resolve to do what is necessary for the country. The Republicans are spineless. They can't even swallow the last set of cuts and now they are pretending to make an effort that the Democrats are going to fight. What does the nation want, a party that lives with their resolve or one that manipulates it? The GOP are wimps and they can't stand the idea they might not get tons of monies from cronies supported by the taxes of the very electorate that puts them in office.
The GOP are spineless whims crying wolf while following the leader like sheep!
