Personal Threat Advisory

My Personal Threat Advisory (PTA) for Saturday Oct 20/2007 is

Not much

I'm not discounting the various threat advisories of various global governments, but should they be the only data points on which we assess risk (of air travel and other activities)?

Are not our own experiences meaningful input to the calculation, especially if such HUMINT were to be aggregated?

My own low PTA for today was weighted down (a good thing) by the sight of a Moslem woman in a hijab sailing through security ahead of me at Ottawa Airport - the scarf clearly not seen as sufficient criteria for specialized attention.

I'm hoping for an even lower PTA tomorrow.
