Just a tidbit I caught from Tech Web.

DAMMIT! It's a matter of record that I was planning to invade France through that. See the lengths that Mr Tony Blair is prepared to go to to thwart me? I'll be seeing contrails soon. ;)
Seriously? Good for them. Let's applaud such prudent caution. Plus... "Heyyyyy," ponders Joe Sixpack, "if there's nuthin' wrong, why is they shutting everythin' down? Maybe I'd best git me some more frozen pizza."

Now, here is some real "meat" for the pollies to get upset over. I mean, a perfect example of NEEDLESS time and trouble spent for a "non-event", that shuts down transportation for so many people.
But no ... since this is being done by government/industry, the pollies will be ALL FOR IT. Because ... it's "prudent" to take such precautions. After all, since there are potentially lives at stake, etc., etc.
Of course when it comes for an INDIVIDUAL taking "prudent" precautions for what might happen, such as storing food and water, THAT is when the pollies have a sissy fit. Go figure.

Tell 'Joe' not to forget the BBQ Pork Rinds.

Hey Colin: It's CHEMtrails, not contrails. ;-)
