I’ll spare you my continued complaints about the ridiculous federal loan affair over at United, only to mention that United will have its 3rd opportunity to apply for a federal loan, the application for which was due in 2002. It certainly helps when the Speaker of the House is from your home state. Corporate welfare at its worst.
Dammit, I just said I would stop talking about that. That will be it, I promise.
In other news, somehow a Northwest Airlines flight to Rapid City, South Dakota, landed at Ellsworth Air Force Base by accident. At least Ellsworth is near Rapid City, so it could be worse, I guess. After landing the pilot told the passengers to pull down the shades and not to look outside.
