Before 9/11, 19 foreign terrorists entered this country just to learn to fly a plane -- not to take off or land, just to man controls while in flight. Today, after blanket coverage of the most publicized aircraft incident in history, 50 million people, even the most inept, should know how to, likewise, fly a wide body commercial jet plane.

Proof? Frequent showings of cockpit instruments and how they work are included in almost every newscast, down to the last twist of the knob. The crash course, Aeronautics 101, the unintended flying lesson, presented 24/7 worldwide by the frenzy of international media conglomerates, appears to have opened a new avenue of protest for dissident groups around the globe just waiting in the wings to plan their next insurgency.
