What's the chance of me being stopped for a minor traffic violation while traveling through that state, and they mistake me for this guy?
Or what if you end up on a no-fly list? It's virtually impossible to get off of a fecal scroll if it's maintained by the gummint.

I flew since, and also recently, so I am apparently OK.

Perhaps they caught him. They listed his rap sheet on the Web, and it included attempted homicide, robberies, car thefts, drug dealings, etc... They considered him dangerous because he was able to elude a SWAT team. Yikes!
