Anyone Flying This Week?

Try not to think of this while you're waiting in line, sitting on the tarmac or filling out a 'lost luggage' form.

With exquisite timing, Boeing chooses a travel weekend that could go down in the annals of airborne horror to deliver a top-of-the-line Boeing Business Jet that will be assigned to Congress - those folks who have charged billions in air travel taxes over the decades and left us with 1930s blind-landing technology. The jet took off from Seattle this morning for its base at Scott AFB in Illinois.
Your tax dollars at work, indeed.
