Maybe the Emperor's publicists have finally learned how to do their job? How else do you explain the partial release on New Year's Eve of the federal air safety study overseen by the minions? With Congress sipping egg nog at home, and everyone else struggling with Dick Clark's diction (or lack thereof), we doubt many will notice or read about near misses, poor piloting, or equipment failures plaguing our our airways. Mind you, we still haven't seen the entire data set that was promised during the Congressional hearings last fall. We'll likely have to wait for another slow news day for that.
And on this last day of the year, we don't believe we've seen the last of the deceptions, obfuscations, and sheer incompetence exhibited this past year by the Emperor and his henchmen. Like Jerry Lewis and his telethon, we here at RocketsAndSuch are waiting for the day when we can close up shop knowing a steady hand is on the rudder. Unfortunately, we suspect we'll be still here this time next year with high hopes.
Happy New Year from the staff at RandS!
