Thank God it wasn't worse and they were able to subdue the man. Maybe now we will see physical searches at screening. Had he been searched they would of found the device taped around his leg.

Thank God indeed. I just saw this story on Yahoo today. What a shocker. I'm just glad that it didn't go off.

Don't they have things that like blow air and anything taped to you is really obvious?
