The air marshalls on the flight though Annie was overeacting. (scroll down) LOS ANGELES | July 22, 2004 � Undercover federal air marshals on board a June 29 Northwest airlines flight from Detroit to LAX identified themselves after a passenger, �overreacted,� to a group of middle-eastern men on board, federal officials and sources have told KFI NEWS.

You know, I thought you were pretty cool and all... but damn that's harsh.

TO JESS: first off, if you're gonna leave a comment, leave a way to get in touch with you. Byt not leaving a URL or email address, it's not fair, I can't respond. Secondly, you missed the irony and sarcasm of that last paragraph. I think it's pretty crazy that the US government won't let in a 16 month old baby, leagally adopted by Canadian parents (who by the way do not need visas to enter the US), but they don't bother to check the EXPIRED visas of over a dozen middle eastern men.... Seems crazy to me! I mean, do you think my little girl, who can barely walk and can't say a word besides Mama, Dada and bye bye is any threat to your country? Candians who live near the border cross it for one reaosn: to spend money. Whetehr shopping at Target or taking mini vacations, visiting attractions or just having lunch, we cross the border to spend money. So it seems to me, they should be trying to make that easier for us, not harder. I was just pointing out the irony that 2 adults who have entered your country hundreds, heck, probably thousands of times, now have to go spend the better part of a day pleading with American authorities to let in a toddler, but those same authorities aren't too bothered about he visa status of a group of middle eastern men....
