Two more odd stories from Europe:
A little background: Iceland has two airlines: Icelandair and Iceland Express (a new budget carrier flying to London and Copenhagen). There is a little hoo-hah in Reykjavik right now because no member of the Icelandic parliament nor any minister has ever flown Iceland Express. Meanwhile, the Danish government has asked that its government officials use Iceland Express to fly to Reykjavik. Yes, this is what controversy is in Iceland.
A 21-year old British woman told a customs agent at Miami airport that, ha ha, she had a bomb in her bag. She was arrested. Ha ha. Said her father, “Clearly the Americans did not see the joke but she hardly looks like Osama bin Laden, for God’s sake.” Oh that’s good.
