Screwy passenger on United Flt. 923

By

Catherine Mayo, the woman who urinated in the aisle and otherwise went a bit berserk on a London to Washington, DC flight and was formally charged today, is not merely a person with claustrophobia, as Gov. Mitt Romney would have you believe. She did, in fact, have a screwdriver that she got past British security. She actually asked, according to the AP,

"Is this a training flight for United Flight 93?" 

This woman may have mental problems, but she definitely has a significant political agenda to go along with them. This isn't the "Minnie Pearl" stage persona on a bad day.
 
Catherine Mayo has visited Pakistan many times and was considering marrying a Pakastani in 2002 who had previously been refused a visa to the US. In the Vermont newpaper The Herald she wrote in 2002,

"I have come here by a long strange road. I met Junaid, a Pakistani man, on line before September 11. He is talking about marriage, so I need to get to know him better before I bring him into the US on a fiancÚ visa. He was refused a visitor visa to the US, so I have come here."

Another quaint few lines from her article seem to show her confused state of mind.

"There is a general rule about the relationship between men and women here. The man is supposed to tell the woman what to do. The woman is supposed to say that she is trying very hard to do what he says, but she is always making mistakes. There is real equality between the sexes here. Equality, with a sense of humor."

One can state that men rule relationships but women have equality (in practice), but it would need further explanation in any article or discussion among intelligent people, something I suspect a more stable 55 year old (at the time of the article's writing) would understand. Or how about these lines authored by "claustrophobic" Catherine Mayo, as reported on the Pakistani Defence Forum website in March 2003,

"It was one of the interesting coincidences of my life that I was in Pindi on the day of the big arrest. I like the irony of my feelings of safety here while my fellow Americans on the other side of the world feel anything but safe.

They are on their own now. While their government takes them down a road with no ending, each citizen needs to carry democracy in his heart.

"Cathy Mayo is an American journalist based in Pakistan"

Catherine Mayo is anything but a journalist. More like a left wing propagandist — and activist. If this is what the left is going to do now, then even as someone throwing a pie at Ann Coulter, will be looked upon with nostalgia.
