Buzz NYC 4.28.9

I'm not buying the cover story from yesterday's buzz of NYC.

"The official story is am improbable scenario. Agreed. On the bright side, I made a fortune in tinfoil futures today."

"AF1 was being moved for routine security or logistic reasons. Pilot goes bugfuck and starts joyriding around NYC. "Escorts and air traffic control talk him down or he's overpowered. Air Force doesn't want to admit that their screening procedures fucked up so royally, so lame and bizarre "photo op" coverstory is spun and a few state and local officials are coopted into lying about a flight plan for "national security reasons".

"When I was younger an aerial event, spectacle, such as this would have been savored. The terrorists have truly won. We're, Americans, are now a bunch of wimpy, over-reactive, hysterical crybabies. No comments here dissuade me from what appears to me to be that simple and terribly disappointing truth."

"The cost of that flight? For a photograph?"

"In a related story, fire trucks and police cars in New York have had their sirens replaced with wind chimes and a recorded voice that softly repeats, "Excuse me, please . . . Pardon me . . . "

Not really sure whether the cover story would pass the rotton fish smell test, but that people actually pulled this off and wouldn't expect a reaction. I think it was a mole hunt within a department to figure out whether security was tight or if had leaks. Getting this reaction from a spokesman and sell it to the public doesn't pass my gut test.

Peebles 4.27.9

Pretty happy with the Packers picks this weekend. Not many surprises since they changed to a 3-4 defense. Hopefully they get signed by the start of training camp. Draft watching lingo guide.

I'm pretty sure that these kids will not be drafted in the MLB. I'm not sure what it says about the talent levels in Bayonne Little League.

On this day 4.23.9

If you are a pet owner with a prescription from the animal pharmacy that killed the 21 horses, would you trust them to perscribe the medicine to your animals? If they screwed up that big I don't imagine anyone doing business with them.

UNC Champions 4.7.9

Not much of a game last night between Michigan State and North Carolina. They jumped to a big lead early and held the Spartans to poor shot attempts. I think the game was over 3 minutes in, but I watched until 13 minutes had passed and the lead had ballooned to 21.

I wonder what took the developers so long. I thought by 2000 these would be out on the market already.

45 puzzle crossing words 4.6.9

Interesting solving the four New York Times crossword puzzles ahead of the publish date. Now when I pick up the paper I can approach the time it took the top solvers. The thing is it will still take me the rest of the afternoon to finish them. Congrats to Will for his second place finish. I guess it is like a road race where competitive runners duel, but now with your book smarts.
