Nothing really surprising there. When will it happen to us though?

I use MSN for my email and have experienced the following:

Last year, I sent an email to my daughter and my husband telling them about an article I had read. The article told of a couple who had gone way overboard in preparing for a pandemic outbreak. It also detailed the power Homeland Security has in the event of a pandemic. I ended with a joke about Homeland Security and said... "the real challenge is how do we protect ourselves from the government".

My email was returned as "unable to deliver".
So, I sent it again, with the same result.

Then, I cut and pasted it into a new email and sent it again. Two days later I got an email saying something like.. "this is a warning that your email cannot be delivered." I found it interesting that they used the word "warning". My daughter and husband never received the email.

A few months later, I emailed them with an excerpt from the book "The Bird Flu Hoax". Also in the email was my husband's upcoming flight schedule. I got the "warning" message again, and they never received the email.

The day of the flight, my husband tried to print a boarding pass, like he usually does. It was denied and he was told to call the airline. They said he would have to show id and check in at the gate, which he did. Coincidence?

So, never think that BB isn't watching... because he is. On the one hand that makes me feel safer... but on the other hand it really bothers me.

Well, Jim and Judy, at least our government is inconsistent . . . they are catching your e-mails, but let the TB groom from Atlanta slip through the border!
