Grand Junction

It's a small town, but the only one of any size in Colorado's large, Western Slope area.

Terrorism has arrived at their doors although the description makes it sound like the work of disgruntled amateurs.

At least three crude bombs exploded and two others were disarmed Friday at the homes of people who work for a federal aviation contractor in Grand Junction, Colorado, prompting evacuation of the air traffic control tower at the city airport, officials said.

No one was injured, which is good and nothing seems to have happened directly at the airport.

I fully expect to hear that it was the work of a disgruntled ex-employee or something.

But that's not why wer're here. Here's the interesting sentence:

Serco, a British company, operates 54 air traffic control towers for the FAA, according to its Web site.

I was no more aware of foreign operation of our airports than I was of foreign operation of our ports.

I'm just saying. Is there anything in the USofA that's actually run by us?
