There They Go

As I'm making spaghetti sauce for dinner, I'm listening to CNN as they try to figure out exactly what happened in New York this afternoon. The announcement was made about a minute ago that NORAD had ordered air cover over "certain U.S. cities." At least six fighter jets just roared over my house, and I can hear the engines to more aircraft firing up at the Air National Guard base near my house.

May they come back safely...

The way I read it they're mobilizing fighter aircraft over "several US cities" as a precaution.

I don't know if you've heard yet but the (fairly green) pilot of the plane was Corey Lidle, a pitcher in the MLB, most recently of the Yankees. His wife, for whatever reason, was not flying with him, she is on a commercial flight back to their home in CA, where he was to meet her.

A bad news day. As I was digesting this, I came home to find that a kid on our high school football team collapsed and died on the field at practice. They think he had a heart attack. The girls have been quite a mess--Emily knew his brother, who is a freshman at Georgetown. But the whole school is in mourning. Very bad news day.
