What an amazing non-story! Let's all run around screaming the sky is falling because some deli worker, who I am sure is a real genius, found some "blueprints".

Did Newsday actually pay someone to gather the information for this story, and then someone else to actually post it?

I am going to start getting the local High School newspaper, I am sure they do a better job than this rag.

Mr. Maucelli demostrated truly remarkable alertness and intelligence for a person working in a deli. And for this reason, I'm having a hard time believing the story as written.

No, he would have been looking in Lois Griffin's trash can for those. That's where I would look. If I looked for those things.

Did anyone ever think that the plans had been thrown away by a contractor that had lost the bid?

It just amazes me the lengths Newsday goes to slam MacArthur Airport. Any little thing, and they are ready to put the airport in a bad light. Shame on them. MacArthur is a Long Island airport and Newsday claims to be a Long Island paper. They should try to funnel money into the Long Island economy instead of trying to lambast the airport and drive people to LGA or JFK.

Bingo, the real story! I happen to like the airport. Less hassles, better access and parking, less delays as compared to JFK and LGA.

At least he was alert enough to realize what it was. He's probably just working the deli until he gets his police test results. Hey, maybe by getting his name in the paper, he will become detective.

Heyyyyyy what's a f'in guy ta do? So dere I wuz eatting my capricola for lunch in my orange truck. I couldn't get comfortable to lay my head down or nuthin, so I'ze say to myself "self" I know, I'll trow dis stuff out (despite the fact it probably cost a couple hundred dollars a copy) so is I have a nice spot to lays down my head. Bocce Balls, they're making a friggin federal caze outta it. Fuggggetttttaboutit.

Here's a clue Town of Islip. How about you check the vehicle locator records for all of the GPS enabled vehicles you own to get a read on which Town employee dumped it. Either that or create a simple numbering system when you assign them out to contractors, employees, bidders etc.

I agree, moronic story and a complete waste of time. Terminal drawings are made available to bidders on work. It is NOT classified information and anyone can probably get same drawings from the town. Ridiculous... Just a media feed on keeping the heightened frenzy alive concerning 9-11. If 7 YEARS hasn't taught us anything, it should at least wake us up to the fact that, WE ARE NOT AFRAID! Get on with life and stop trying to scare the s h i t out of everyone, it doesn't work anymore.

WHILE I DO AGREE IF THE AIRPORT BLUEPRINTS GOT INTO THE HANDS OF A BAD GUY, IT COULD HELP HIM IN A TERRORIST ACT..... BUT......REMEMBER THOSE PRINTS ARE PUBLIC INFORMATION, & ALSO AVAILABLE TO ANY CONTRACTOR WHO BIDS ON A CONSTRUCTION PROJECT AT THE AIRPORT......ANYWAY THIS ARTICLE IS NOT NEWSWORTHY, & THIS WHY SNOOZEDAY RATINGS ARE FALLING LIKE A STREAMLINED CROWBAR.

I am shocked by many of the comments on here. Not that long ago, terrorists flew planes into the Pentagon, World Trade Center and hijacked a plane that went down in PA.

These men studied our processes, they learned to fly planes, etc. Does it not seem like the logical thing to do if you found airport plans in a garbage at a deli? It's a strange place to find plans to an airport. While this may not be newsworthy to you now, there is always the possiblity that it would become newsday in the future. Nobody felt it was newsworthy when Moussaoui was arrested in Minneapolis for suspected terrorist activities when he only wanted to learn how to fly a plane, not land it. Not even the FBI thought anything of it. Not until this act was used to kill 3,000 Americans did it actually become newsworthy.

I hope people continue to look out for strange activity and report it when necessary so that we never have to live through anything like we did on September 11th, 2001.
