Since yesterday when I posted a story about an anti-gay and threatening comment made on the PA system at Fort Lauderdale Airport, it has been picked up by the local media, including the local news and the Miami Herald.

I also contacted a county commissioner, who sent some emails to several airport executives.  About an hour ago, I received a phone call from the sheriff's department who told me that they were going to do a full investigation, including looking at video and listening to audio recordings.  I also have received phone calls from several other media sources, with many going with the security angle as well.

I still have not heard from United Airlines, and they do not answer their customer comment phone.  I sent them an email yesterday, so I do not know how often they read those.

Thanks for the many people who have contacted airport officials and other entities here in Fort Lauderdale.  It seems to have gotten things moving more quickly than what happened on Tuesday morning.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
