Travelers beware


The U.S. State Department threw a Y2K one-two punch over the last week that should have travelers thinking twice and then twice more about their New Year's travel plans.

The first jab came on Saturday, when the State Department issued a "worldwide caution," warning American roadies that they could be sitting ducks for terrorists over the December-January holiday period.

Next came yesterday's follow-up announcement, which asks travelers to come up with backup plans to cope with any and all Y2K glitches.

The second announcement goes into great detail about how to keep Y2Kalamities from spoiling a good time: Register with U.S. embassies abroad; keep an eye on embassy and consulate Internet home pages; attend town meetings held by the embassies of countries you will be visiting; check the expiration dates on your documents; on and on it goes.

They left one out: Stay home.
