Yeah, Kevin Brown should be getting a call soon.

Its funny though because also a bus could drive into DC packed with tons of explosives but thats ok. Them flying things are scary though!

It's been a pretty odd week, between the Cessna thing and the grenade they found near the podium while Bush was speaking in Georgia. I only work a few blocks from the White House, and it's kind've creepy when this stuff happens.


I just think its funny that these massive planes are constantly flying right next to the city but a little plane flies over an imaginary line and its like the world is ending


Did you know there's a 30-minute rule on planes inbound to DC? If you're out of your seat within 30 minutes of touchdown, they divert the plane elsewhere and you get yourself a file with the FBI, and your name gets added to a "do-not-fly" list, which is a pain to get removed from. It almost happened to someone in my office, who was flying into DC from Alaska. She got up and the stewardesses all panicked, but nothing happened. The pilot later told her it was because they were like 15 seconds away from entering into the 30-minute window. I'd hate to fly all the way from Alaska to DC, only to have to end up going elsewhere because you had to go to the bathroom at the wrong time. :-/

Yea the 30 minute thing is crazy too..I hate that! I hate flying all together but that makes it really bad cause I'm super nervous about flying and I hate being told that I "HAVE" to sit in my seat! Crazyness...flying sucks...
