Cell phones on planes worry US law enforcement

Is common sense a thing of the past? Something we can't afford in the post September 11th world? Because this article is just completely stupid. Ok, so terrorists could use cell phones to help coordinate attacks or remotely trigger bombs or whatever. Now, I don't give a fuck if people are allowed to use cell phones on flights or not, but how the fuck does anyone think that not allowing it is going to stop terrorists from using them. Like the terrorists are all sitting around planning their plot of death and destruction, and one guy says he will call on his cell phone when it's time to put the plan in motion, then another guy says, but wait, you can't use your cell phone on the plane. SO they all say fuck, let's just stay home and watch DVDs. Yeah, I don't think that's how it would go either. I don't think people executing terrorist plots are going to be too worried about violating a ban on cell phone use on a plane. As long as they actually let people take cell phones on a plane at all, the problems they describe are possibilities. But there are a whole shitload of activities we could restrict in the name of stopping terrorism, andsome of them might even actually work, but that doesn't mean we should always do them.
