Somebody is gonna regret some hyperbolic language, that's for sure.

It's been 50 years since anyone could get away with joking about bombs on airplanes. I remember when I was a little kid, my father taking the family on our first plane flight, and warning us ahead of time, "Under no circumstances mention anything having to do with bombs, explosives, guns, firecrackers -- even as a joke. No joking! Got that?"

I'm 60. That was probably the early 1960's.

These folks are clearly dingbats.

I am not sure what “domestic dispute” covers in this instance. Mother-daughter? Lovers married to each other?

Sounds like it was the other party that called in the threat about the one on the plane. Man... that’s cold.
