Duh, they could be used to allow terrorists to see in the dark!!! [gasp]  :-)  Fortunately, you can still get the mantels on eBay, even if you can't get them at 7-11 for 59 cents anymore.  You might have to outbid me, though, as I'm still working on my Small Modular Apartment Reactor - Thorium Fueled for America's Competitive Enterprise (SMART-FACE). 

On the Newark airport panic, my wild guess is the laptop's wireless card was transmitting.
Best regards,


Hold the door for the stranger behind you. When the driver in the adjacent lane signals to get over, slow down. Smile and say "hi" to the folks you pass on the sidewalk. Give blood. Volunteer.
