Have I Been Out Of It?

Have I been out of it, or has this story slipped under the radar? It happened two weeks ago and I'm just hearing about it now.

Jose Manuel Pelayo-Ortega was a crazy passenger on a flight to Sacramento who claimed he had a bomb and was subdued by passengers.

I thought it was odd that, with United 93 premiering that week and all the illegal immigrant stuff in the news, that nobody seems to have reported the story! Pelayo-Ortega's hometown was not released, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was illegal. I only found 12 links on Technorati. It must have been back page stuff in the press. Is this being hushed up, or am I just out of it?

Update: Here's the Bee's story.

That's news to me, too. Hmmm.

Hadn't heard of it.

Wotta shock.

Now, if he had been descended from dead white European male patriarchal oppressors, then we all would have posted on it two weeks ago.

Thanks for the heads up, Annika.

Pay no attention to the man trussed up on the cabin floor... merely the side effects of muling black tar heroin in your innards.

I say we cut him open, and do a thorough investigation. He's certainly got SOMETHING inside of him. Does anyone know what an evil humor looks like?
