It might have something to do with the shutdown of MDW for a half hour due to a bomb note.

Abrams described it as a "possible and nonspecific bomb threat."

What the Hell is a non-specific threat? Unless it was written by some wanna-be rap star penning lyrics about how "that ho sure is da bomb", or The Gap Band left their lyric sheet behind I think it should be pretty damn specific.

Bomb+plane=bad

Joking around+leaving note behind=Federal "Pound You In The Ass" Prison

Haven't people learned not to f*#k around anymore about this crap. What idiots.
