Are They Practicing?

What is with the laser pointers being used to target plane cockpits? This is the second incident that has been reported for someone being arrested, here, for engaging in "laser pointing." So, are these practice runs of some sort to get planes full of unsuspecting passengers to crash into the ground? Would it really be possible to blind a cock-pit crew with a high-intensity laser pointer which would cause a plane to crash to the ground? Will this be the next "terrorism" tactic used? As if flying hasn't become absolutely miserable enough already, what with full body x-ray searches, no liquids allowed in carry-on luggage, the high cost and shoddy service, now we have to worry about laser pointers, too? Good grief.
