An observation, having occured to the author on one of the planes home from Calgary

[Poll question: Should I use all-Georgian and Victorian titles such as the one above from now on?]

Looking around the plane at the bored flight attendents demonstrating to almost universally inattentive passengers the relevant "safety features of the Airbus A319," ("Keeping in mind that the closest exit"--two fingered-, two-handed-point to the back of the plane--"may be behind you"), I realized that many of the passengers would have paid much closer attention if the flight attendents had waited until we were airborne and experiencing "a little moderate turbulence" to explain the "safety features."

I have decided to take that observation as the basis for approving of how much we have seen of Tom Ridge and duct tape during the present Code: Orange.
