Loopey Tunes

For those of you awaiting an answer on Monday's quiz with bated breath, those paragraphs were penned by yours truly, harnessing my inner Lupica.

As George noted, I kind of gave it away because I lifted the Tilden Projects reference straight from that day's rubbish. Thanks for playing.

I have a pair of FAA written tests to take next week, so I'm currently using most of my time to cram for them, and not writing this week's diatribe about CBS making a mockery of journalism by hiring loathsome Katie Couric.

There are 1,100 potential questions that all sound similar to this:

You are on a heading directly to the station of 060. You receive this ATC clearance: Cleared to the XYZ VOR. Hold Northeast on the 040 degree radial from the VOR. Left turns. What is the recommended procedure to enter the holding pattern?

If anyone wants to take a stab at the answer, ye shall surely win a frosty taste at some future date.

You tell the passengers the weather is bad in newark, circle for another 45 minutes and see how many more $5 tastes you can sell.

Then you bring her in, go get tanked at the airport bar, pick up a whore, take her to the Newark Hilton and sober up/clean up just in time to captain a non-stop from Newark to Dallas the next morning.

I just heard Martina Navratilova on the radio this week. Turns out she acquired her pilot's license as well.

Turns out hooking up with women isn't the only thing you two have in common.
