I felt that not submitting this to the news section would get to more readers faster.
According to the FRONT page of the Columbus Dispatch today, Terrorists have "cased" several sites of possible attacks . Among them: Disneyworld and Disneyland, the Mall of America (which features Knotts Camp Snoopy) The Sears tower and some unknown sports facilities.
These places have been warned to look out from the government, and each has increased security.
In another related story (not in the paper) there is a letter going around on the internet talking about a woman who was dating an Afganistan man. Apparently, the man left town abrubtly and a few days later, the woman recieved a letter saying "stay off commercial aircraft on Sept 11th and away from Malls on October 31"
"Stay away from Malls Oct. 31"
Just thought I would share what little information I have on each.

I have seen news from several sources that the Oct. 31 warning is a hoax.

I got that Oct. 31 mall e-mail also, I'm sure it's just somebody looking to be stupid and trying to scare some people.

Well, I decided to put the 10/31 rumor in there since it could be related to a mall of america attack case listed above.

Your just starting to try to scare people. Last night I was at the Mall Of America in Bloomington Mn and I felt very comfertiable there security is more present now to make you feel more safer.

Since even Sept 11th, all of these facilities have added a lot of extra security and the observation deck of the Sears tower has been closed. Disney security has been inspecting bags and some security guards have been given the power to make arrests.
I feel safer.

That mall thing is a giant hoax. Don't worry about it. It's just like the rumors of some guy at Fort Dix being pulled from his army jeep and being shot. IT NEVER HAPPENED OR WILL HAPPEN!
