#1 I expect that American passengers will no longer allow planes to be hijacked with box cutters. The training will serve when a cargo flight is targetted. Publicity for the Air Force policy is good as a deterent and to remind Americans to pay attention.

#2 General Eberhard is assigned here in Colorado Springs. There was a nice write-up about the mission in today's Gazette newspaper. I'm happy to see Ed in this job - he's a great guy! He's an alumni of my doolie flight at the Air Force Academy. I wouldn't call him a friend, but we both recognize each other's names. We've run across each other several times over the last 40 years. He's a 4-star general, and I was happy with MSgt stripes! Glad it's his headaches and not mine.
