We avoid politics here but we heard the President ranting on carbon emmissions and carbon footprints and global warming and we thought -- wait a minute. Whose the one dragging a giant 747 around on every trip and what sort of carbon footprint does that leave? I mean, at the height of World War II -- when there were real dangerous Germany fighter pilots up there - FDR was happy to fly without so much as a fighter escort -- all the way to Tehran. Here he is in the back of an Army C-54 between Algeirs and Cairo. I'd say a man could get by with a 737 or A330, huh? The Brits, French, Germans and most everyone else does. Except us. And a few Middle Eastern 747s.
