TRAVERSE CITY — Authorities took a California man into custody this morning at Cherry Capital Airport following a disturbance on a United Express flight from Chicago. Officials closed the airport sometime after 10 a.m. after a disturbance report. Passengers on the United Express flight were led from the plane after a man apparently created a disturbance in the plane's restroom. Authorities took the man into custody shortly before 11 a.m.
Agreed. Another part of the conditioning to get people used to the idea of limited/zero travel so that when you're told to stay where you are, you realize you have no choice, either because you're too damned scared or you're mentally conditioned not to take flight during fear.

Don't worry. Posters will be here shortly to explain how you will still be "free" to travel because you can walk. They will let you know the "choice" is yours.
