Can I just say that if someone finds a note on an air sick bag suggesting there is a bomb on the plane the probability that there is actually such a bomb is incredibly low. "Step 1: put bomb on plane. Step 2: Put menacing note on hidden air sick bag." is probably not the set of instructions followed by your typical terrorist.

I can understand why diverting and landing a plane is the appropriate response to such a thing, but it's no excuse for panicky news reports.
