I just read an article in USA Today that informs us that several commercial airlines will be arming their flights with missiles–missiles designed to intercept rockets fired by terrorists on the ground with shoulder launchers.

It gives a whole new meaning to those cheap headphones they pass out for inflight entertainment. I’ll make sure I get them every time. Perhaps they’ll muffle the sound of the bombs bursting in air!
