I'm at the Montreal airport now. News this morning said that at Heathrow they arrested 21 terrorist suspects who carried bombs to the airport. The effect of this incident is that it took me exact 2 hours to check-in and go thru security check. I had a 'manual check' on my body, how's that. I suppose the ridiculously strict and tedious immigration and security checking is the main reason for one to become less sympathetic with "terrorists" and the community they think they represent.
And they took away my lip balm. But that's ok. My real vacation is just about to begin.
