I actually had to reach over and turn off BBC WS this morning...

BBC WS had some airhead "expert" explaining about Lithium-Ion battery safety in the context of this news.

As if that's an issue that affects only these Mideast and North Africa airports, and as if putting the smoldering laptop in the cargo hold is an improvement.

Dear Expert on BBC. You're an idiot.
