What did I just say about a plane crash? There was a
bad one in Houston today. We heard about it at work this
morning. The weather is nasty. We speculated on what might have
caused the trouble. It turns out, George Bush senior. was scheduled to
take that plane on a business trip. That is why it was flying into
Hobey Airport. The plane clipped a light pole on the Beltway.
Those things are quite high, but not so high you would expect planes to
clip them. I wonder if it hit the pole after something else caused it
to loose altitude. That was a corporate jet. I've heard those things
are pretty reliable. I might be wrong. Here
is another opinion. (from the Daily
Brief) People have horrible
opinions about this.
I've said many times that we should not take the Europeans opinions too
seriously. Europeans are going to do what the Europeans do best, sit on
their hands and bitch until America bails them out. Here is
another opinion. (from Tim
I hope this
guy (the fan who threw the cup) gets seriously smacked by the legal
system. I don't care who did what, players, who make millions, should
never go after a fan. If the fan pulled a knife, or gun, I would say
different. The guy threw a cup of ice. Look Mr. Multi-millionaire,
(wait, not so much any more (hehe)) give it a rest and be the bigger
man. You have a million impressionable kids worshiping your every move.
Looser. I wish they would fire you and sue you for the hundreds of
millions this may cost the NBA.
Ah, it is Us vs Them
Even a tolerant people will tern on the
intolerant. When people who think they are the most welcoming folks
in the world find themselves under siege, they will tern. They will
defend their homes with the same ferocity as grisly will protect her
young. It cannot be the people on the other side of the world in
trouble. It cannot be people they do not know who are threatened. It
must be them, their children, their way of life, their existence, their
place in history, their legacy, and not one item less. They will tern,
unless it is too late, unless they have been terned against.
