    No.
    Iím more likely to be killed in something more common so, why should I worry?

    When you see (or if you saw) people dressed in Muslim garb getting onto your airplane, is there any moment of uneasyness or nervousness in you?
    I used to get a little nervous, when I lived in Ohio and didn't fly very often. But here in DC, I really stopped noticing because it's so ubiquitous. Otherwise I'd be nervous every time I stepped onto a plane.

    Under certain conditions.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I don't own an aeroplane, so I don't worry about it.

    Well then, maybe you could get a job with NPR. I hear they will be hiring 100 journolists. I'm sure the first question on the application will be "Do you get nervous on planes with Muslims."
    Seriously, if this poll is any indication, I bet there are others at NPR who feel the same as Juan. Oh well, as long as they don't also work for Fox, their jobs are safe.

    I thought his comment was amusing coming from a black guy.
    If someone said that ABOUT a black guy people would be



    But, no, I don't look at how people are dressed and get worried (ok - 'cause I wear some pretty strange outfits)
    I look at how people ACT and get worried if they're acting suspicious or peculiar.

    .
    I was about to say that about a black guy. I lived in a black neighborhood had been mugged and beaten up in a race riot. So I was a little paranoid to say the least. Till one day there was this black guy walking down the street and I had crossed the road in order to avoid anything. It turned out to be a friend I knew. And well I really felt like ****.

    Considering How This Story has made the rounds Big Time in the last 24 Hours - Well, How about asking the Same Question to a lot of Politicians including those up for contests 11 days from now.

    No. I'm much more worried about drunks and children than I am about Muslims. And I am automatically nervous any time I am either unarmed or in a crowded place. Thus, I much prefer driving anywhere I need to go.

    For the same reason I wear a suit and tie as often as expediency allows. Clothing tells society who you are and how to treat you. I want to be treated like a powerful man; they want to be treated like holy men.

    I feel more comfortable around those in Muslim garb.

    The terrorists are the ones who don't look like that because a successful mission requires not drawing attention to one self
