From Peace Activist to Piss Activist

From Fox News we see a woman caused a plane diversion in Boston with her bizarre behavior. She muttered inarticulately which made the passengers and flight crew nervous, then she squatted on the floor of the plane and urinated. The crew had to tackle and cuff her when her behavior became more "frenzied".

Catherine Mayo, 59, is a peace activist who travelled to Pakistan where she has published news articles there criticizing President Bush.

"The folksongs of the 1960s will never be written again because of President George Bush," she wrote. "He has hampered the liberties of my country in the name of September 11. Songs now can only talk of patriotism they cannot mention peace."

That's right. There is a law against writing songs which use the word "peace".

Her son, 31, says:

"I guess she just had a bit of a bad time on the plane, and everybody's a little paranoid."

Uh huh. If this occurred pre 9/11 no one would have blinked an eye at a woman pulling down her knickers and squatting on the floor to urinate in public.

FBI spokeswoman Gail Marcinkiewicz confirmed Thursday that authorities found a screwdriver and an unspecified number of cigarette lighters in her bag, items which are banned under new security regulations. Marcinkiewicz also confirmed that matches were found Mayo's bag.

She also had a bottle of water, which did not appear to be supplied by the flight crew. It wasn't clear how the items made it through airport security, which has been significantly tightened since the terror plot arrests.

"Significantly tightened"? Apparently not enough. I get pulled over for carrying eyebrow tweezers in my makeup bag. She gets away with a screwdriver???

Her attorney, federal public defender Page Kelley, said Mayo was "just barely lucid" when they spoke. "She's got some very serious mental health problems."

I'll say. Hating President Bush and siding with Al Qaeda are not political positions. They are symptoms of liberal mental illness.
