    Aircraft is not being maintained well, these days. Fuel costs are high, and that leads to cuts elsewhere.

    Thanks to god that nothing wrong happened to "W". I was very much disgusted this morning listening to Chris Wallace interviewing Dick Cheney and not "W" as if Cheney was elected to run the country. This kind of letting down "W" should stop. Why rush to Cheney and ask him about securing the country while "W" is available. Chris Wallace has lost my support. He is nowadays another puppet.

    Just read where scientist have made the brain invisible. The republicans, have been doing this for years and years. Pictured above is the person most responsible.

    @ST, probably wcause dearth Cheney WAS running the country.
    He appointed himself vp candidate and was the puppet master extraordinaire.
    Ths shrub #43 is probably the wort president so that means that Cheney was the worst od both president and vp.
    I hope that new heart is the last good thing science does for him.
