Quote of the Day - The saying "Getting there is half the fun" became obsolete with the advent of commercial airlines.
In airplane lingo, that means parked in an airline lounge in Denver (that white stuff in the video is snow in the mountains). I'm not blaming United Airlines, but then again, who else can I blame?
When I checked in, my bags apparently weren't. Ah, the perils of air travel.
At least, though, I'm not flying over Brazil today.
Today is the first day that the Brazilian Air Force gets to shoot small planes out of the sky if they are suspected of carrying drugs. OK, fine, but how do you tell? Are there labels that drug-runners attach to the sides of their planes that say, "Shoot me, I'm carrying narcotics"?
I mean, there you are flying your Brazilian fighter plane, and you spot a Piper Cub. So you want to get in some target practice.
Blam! Right out of the sky. Red-baron style.
Maybe I should be glad I'm flying the friendly skies.
