SWEET AND LOW

Northwest Airlines has removed packets of artificial sweeteners and powdered coffee creamer from all flights due to the general public's anthrax-related concerns about "mysterious" white powders. Two Northwest flights have already been delayed due to false alarms cncerning white powders. Ironically, passengers will still be allowed to bring their own sweeteners or powdered creamers aboard, thogh airline officials don't recommend doing so. In a related story, a local drug dealer who asked not to be identified has reported that widespread public fear of white powdery substances has not had any significant impact on the booming cocaine market.
