White-Knuckle Posting

All of you have probably seen the emergency landing of that Jet Blue flight with the twisted front gear in Los Angeles yesterday, but in case you haven't, the Political Teen has got it up.

Not the sort of thing I need to see just before winging all the way across the country myself.

The rational side of my brain is saying, "Okay, some kind of mechanical glitch, but very professional job in getting the plane down safely."

The irrational side of my brain is saying, "If you keep showing pictures of that twisted gear, you'll just give all the other jets bad ideas."

Don't be silly, jets can't read. Fly JetBlue because -- as Garp once noted in his world -- it's been "pre-disastered," and ought to be safe flying for at least a few weeks. (That was about the only useable quote from that movie.)

I think of that kid's bandwidth expense each month and I say, "Man, it must be nice to have rich parents."
