“The hidden hand of the market will never work without the hidden fist-McDonald’s cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the designer of the F-15.”

— Thomas L. Friedman, “A Manifesto for a Fast World,” March 1999


This is a quick thought maybe Boeing should have come up with awhile ago, and should have been obvious, “take the controls to the transponders that give the location of the jet out of the cockpit.  I have said it before, why would the ability to make the plane “go black” be accessible inside the plane, both of them. This is asinine!  At least one should only be available if the plane is on the runway.  Come on guys, make it a little tough on the bad guys and dumb asses, or, is it you that are the dumbasses?”


I preach it over and over, Security depends on redundancy.  You must have backup systems, plans, programs, and options to have successful Security.  It’s always A, B, C, D, etc., etc.  It is not exciting, but it is reality.  The trouble in Security begins when people start throwing their hands up and answers stop.  Another in the multitude of examples of this is the Malaysian Jetliner missing.  The people running the investigation at present have run out of options.  It shows on their faces and it is amplified by the heart-wrenching reality shown by the victims families.  If you never want to experience this type of incompetency, THEN PLAN FOR ALL POSSIBILITIES IN EVERYTHING YOU DO!
