Not terribly fond of flying in the first place, I found a big-screen TV (my office is crawling with them) and rubbernecked with a few of my colleagues. On the drive home, I listened to each of NPR's stories on the event, each one about 5 minutes after the last. I'm very glad everyone is safe and that the pilot showed such presence of mind under pressure.
I guess it was my relief which made the tweets from @RedWhiteandNews even funnier, when I got home and read them, all at once. If you don't know what that is / who he is, he used to twitter under the name of @FakeJohnMcCain, and he was highly entertaining during the election. Afterwards, he changed his nom de plume, and spits out pretty solid material during the average day. Today, however, was clearly not an average day. I decided to RT (retweet) his missives for you, so you could enjoy them too. If you are on Twitter but don't follow him, check him out - he's BEGGING for followers!
