    Here we go again. This week it's Delta that's grounded its domestic flights due to computer issues:

    I don't want to sound like a conspiracy nutjob, but if I were al Qaeda or the Islamic State, shutting down the big airlines' computer systems would be on my to-do list. The sheer number of computer incidents the past couple of years makes me skeptical that they're all just hardware/software/incompetent IT manager issues.
