UPDATE I: U.K. Police Make 5th Terror Arrest
GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) – Police searched several houses near Glasgow’s airport and made a fifth arrest Sunday in connection with a fiery attack on its main terminal and foiled car bombings in London, which the prime minister suggested were carried out by terrorists linked to al-Qaida.

The New Orleans Travel Show is the latest effort by concerned individuals who want to remind those in the travel and vacation booking business that people have not forgotten Natalee Holloway nor what happened in Aruba and continues to this day with regards to a cover up and lack of justice.
Let the following efforts by those that wish to remind the travel industry that it is unacceptable for a tourist to go missing and have their investigation covered up. Aruba, is not a vacation option. There are far too many other places for people to spend their hard earned money on a vacation. Promote travel to New Orleans and help revitalize their economy following Hurricane Katrina.
Lowering a price for a ticket or a package deal is not an option … Tourism industry, the only option when dealing with Aruba is … JUSTICE FOR NATALEE!
The following are the personal accounts of those on the ground including Scared Monkeys members from New Orleans: (Hat Tip: Karo)
There was good exposure for the cause today in New Orleans! Although some protesters were unable to come, last minute, and there are just 3 of us, the banners and signs are being noticed and are as well placed as possible. (Some of them are shown on the photos below.) We can only place signs on public property and Hilton Hotel security made us take down a banner they thought was too close to their property. The World Trade Center made us move signs in their lawn, near the sidewalk. Otherwise, there were no problems.

People were walking up to us and talking about the case, asking questions. Some were arrogant or rude and refused to take the nice brochures we were passing out. Others seemed extremely interested in the case and very sympathetic to Natalee’s family. Several even made it a point to tell us THEY are not going to Aruba!
What was supposed to be a 2 1/2 hour JetBlue plane flight from Fort Lauderdale, FL to New York City became a 25 hour adventure from hell. The 150 unlucky passengers aboard JetBlue’s Flight 62 were diverted by bad weather to Atlantic City, NJ, where passengers sat on the tarmac for four hours. That was just the beginning of the disastrous flight. JetBlue does not have any ice storms this time to blame the delays on. Instead they have many disgruntled passengers who were less than happy or inspired by the actions of JetBlue and their agents.
The airline paid $20 million to $30 million in compensation under a “bill of rights” unveiled in March, but it wasn’t enough to save founder David Neeleman from being replaced in May as chief executive officer. Since then, the airline’s performance has been mixed. (Sun Sentinel)
