Hi, I know I haven't written in a while, but things have been a bit hectic

So it’s been awhile since I posted anything. I haven’t been flying as the airplane I use at the school has been crashed; that I was not on it is the good news, that there were no injuries or deaths is the great news. A good landing is one you walk away from, a great landing is one you can immediately use the plane afterwards... this was merely a good landing.

Speaking of the news, have you caught these stories lately?

From USA Today on 8/22/05:

"Pat Robertson calls for assassination of Hugo Chavez
VIRGINIA BEACH (AP) — Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested on-air that American operatives assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to stop his country from becoming "a launching pad for communist infiltration and Muslim extremism."

or this one from yesterday in Yahoo news:

“ Venezuela offers fuel, food to hurricane-hit US
Mon Aug 29, 7:48 PM ET

CARACAS (AFP) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez offered to send food and fuel to the United States after the powerful Hurricane Katrina pummeled the US south, ravaging US crude production.

The leftist leader, a frequent critic of the United States and a target himself of US disapproval, said Venezuela could send aid workers with drinking water, food and fuel to US communities hit by the hurricane.

"We place at the disposition of the people of the United States in the event of shortages -- we have drinking water, food, we can provide fuel," Chavez told reporters.

Chavez said fuel could be sent to the United States via a Citgo refinery that has not been affected by the hurricane. Citgo is owned by Venezuela's state-owned oil company, Petroleos de Venezuela “

or my personal favorite from something called the Jamaican Observer from today:

“CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Sunday that his government could request the extradition of US religious broadcaster Pat Robertson for suggesting American agents should kill him.

Speaking to foreign delegations attending a meeting of the Organisation of American States in Caracas, Chavez said Venezuela would "exercise legal action in the United States" against Robertson.

Robertson's comments last week have increased already tense relations between Caracas and Washington. He called for Chavez's assassination on his TV show The 700 Club, saying the United States should "take him out" because the Venezuelan leader poses a danger to the region.”

yep, you gotta keep up with the news...

I love the quote from Hugo Chavez calling for the PR's extradition. Unfortunately I live in the same city as Pat and his CBN army.
