Thanks, Lan. That's bizarre in the extreme, and very surprising.
Sorry, I was a bit distracted from the news because things like
the suicide of a good friend, recently, and the sudden natural
death of my very beloved eldest brother early the past Monday
morning.

The only excuse I can think of that NASA might have for
requesting such data is that many of their employees frequently
have to travel by air to attend business matters, and that maybe
they want to try and learn which airline routes might be safest
due to their less frequently being used by persons who are being
watched in interest of homeland security. I would deem that a
valid concern. Whatever the reason, some people might rest more
comfortably if NASA would enlighten them as to just why they are
collecting such data as though they were an intelligence agency.
Yet, with our nation laboring under the most information-
repressive regime in history, we will probably never know.
