Washington-Dulles on security lockdown

I don’t know why WaPo isn’t reporting on it yet, but my XM weather & traffic radio says that Dulles is on security lockdown and no planes are leaving due to a security failure. Presumably arriving planes are progressing as normal.

Update (1:59p): Well, WaPo still doesn’t seem to think that a complete airport shutdown is worth reporting on but WTOP has this brief blurb. Too bad a few of those folks on the other side of the metal detectors looking at IDs weren’t on the other side where they could have, I dunno, stopped someone from walking away after setting off the detector?

Here’s hoping it was a pocketknife that tripped the alarm and not a firearm that could be hidden somewhere for a future conspirator to pick up.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
