((NO AIRLINE SECURITY COULD POSSIBLY MATCH THAT ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE. BUT PRESIDENT BUSH, UNVEILING HIS MUCH ANTICIPATED AIR SECURITY PACKAGE IN CHICAGO TODAY, SAYS COMMERCIAL FLIGHTS ARE ABOUT TO BECOME MORE SECURE THAN EVER BEFORE.
AND TO ENCOURAGE THE PUBLIC TO GET BACK IN THE AIR.. TRANSPORTATION SECRETARY NORMAN MINETTA FLEW TO CHICAGO ON A COMMERCIAL FLIGHT TODAY:

(SOT)NORMAN MINETA/TRANSPORTATION SECRETARY (TC 5:51:28)

"The system is safe, secure and stable."
THE SECURITY PACKAGE CALLS FOR STRONGER COCKPIT DOORS AND ARMED MARSHALS ON COMMERCIAL FLIGHTS. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WOULD TAKE OVER BAGGAGE CHECKS AND PASSANGER SCREENINGS. SINCE IT COULD TAKE MONTHS TO IMPLEMENT THE NEW MEASURES, PRESIDENT BUSH IS URGING GOVERNORS TO IMMEDIATELY CALL UP THE NATIONAL GUARD TO PROTECT AIRPORTS FOR NOW. MUCH OF THE PUBLIC HAS LITTLE FAITH IN CURRENT AIRPORT SECURITY WORKERS.

SOTS: MOS 10:14:17 - "my basic trust level's pretty low right now, I've

heard that they get paid minimum wage. Actually I felt like Disneyland had a little more security than some of the airports have."

THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION IS URGING JACKSON NOT TO GO. AND THERE ARE CONFLICTING REPORTS ABOUT THE POTENTIAL MEETING...WITH SOME OFFICIALS IN AFGHANISTAN SAYING THAT JACKSON INSTIGATED THE OFFER. . ))

Today's attack left at least 14 people dead, including three local government leaders.
Police won't say exactly HOW the gunman died.
He reportedly dressed as a policeman, stormed into a government session and opened fire with an assault rifle.
Authorities say he then set off an explosive.
No word on any possible motives
While Switzerland has some of the most liberal gun laws in the world, officials say security may have to be reviewed.

Kim, Optical Cable Corporation manufactures fiber optic cable in Roanoke County.
Sine the terrorist attacks, it has lost two-thirds of its value .. and in the last year, company stock has fallen more than 90 per cent.
Late this summer, the company's C-E-O Bob Kopstein was forced to sell massive amounts Optical Cable stock he held,
stock he used as collateral for other investments. In the financial world, that's a "Margin Call".
Such calls are common in declining markets, but some area financial experts we spoke to, who did not want to be indentified, say this large number and volume of transactions by a senior company official IS unusual.

I've tried to reach Kopstein and his Chief Financial Officer Neil Wilkin by phone and e-mail.
They are apparently in meetings have been so since early this morning.
Kopstein did say earlier this year he was selling stock to raise money for an expansion in China.
