A computer glitch at an Atlanta airport is causing flight delays around the country. Here's a roundup of the best first rants and reactions as bloggers and tweeters discovered the setback to travelers:

  • Maggie Koerth-Baker, Boing Boing: "Is it too early to start drinking at the airport?" she asks. "If they won't open the bars yet, we think you at least deserve a conciliatory Cinnabon."
  • John Carney, Forbes: "An aviation security expert we spoke with this morning said the glitch is almost certainly making it harder to detect when planes have deviated from their flight plan, a key indicator of a terrorist high jacking. We don't want to be alarmist about this, of course, but we thought we should share this possibility."
  • Allyson Robinson, Twitter: "So, I love the band, but really, Airport Starbucks, isn't Coldplay during massive flight delays a little cliche? And maybe redundant?"
  • Israel Matzav: "I was supposed to be home this afternoon. But God had other plans."
