Andy’z Take on the New”z”

by Andy Borowitz

It turns out that Rand Paul and John McCain despise each other. Finally, two Republicans I agree with.

Five billion dollars will be spent on the election. It’s a good thing our schools and roads are in such great shape or I’d be pissed.

Passengers Treated, Released After Flight Diverts to Buffalo

 SkyWest jet lands safely after reported pressurization issue

SkyWest jet lands safely after reported pressurization issue

 CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (AP) — A SkyWest airlines flight to Connecticut was diverted, descended steeply and made an emergency landing in New York on Wednesday after three passengers lost consciousness.
 The flight, carrying 75 passengers, departed from O’Hare International Airport in Chicago and had been bound for Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut. It landed at Buffalo Niagara International Airport in Buffalo at about 11:40 a.m.

A SkyWest spokeswoman initially reported that one passenger aboard Flight 5622, operating as United Express, lost consciousness and the pilots rapidly descended “out of an abundance of caution.”

But in a later statement, SkyWest spokeswoman Marissa Snow said new information from medical personnel confirmed that “a total of three passengers reported a loss of consciousness while on the flight.”

Mary Cunningham, a nurse at Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut was on the flight. She told WTNH-TV she helped provide medical attention after the first woman passed out.

“We got her oxygen and as soon as she got on the oxygen she was alert, she came right back,” Cunningham said. “Then I went back to my seat after she was feeling better and they called me right back because the person sitting right behind her passed out.”

For nearly eight minutes, the plane descended at a very steep incline, dropping as fast as 7,000 feet per minute, flight tracking service FlightAware said.

“We dropped so fast that I didn’t know what was going to happen,” Larry Johnson of Danbury, Connecticut told WTNH. “I thought we were going to have to swim in the ocean or do something. All the movie thoughts are running through your head.”

SkyWest Inc., which is based in St. George, Utah, earlier had said the jet landed safely and a passenger received medical attention before being released.

An additional 15 adults and two children were evaluated upon landing, but none required treatment outside the airport, airport spokesman C. Douglas Hartmayer said.

“Anyone who said they didn’t feel well was treated at the gate,” he said.

In an earlier statement, Snow said in an email: “There were no reports before the unconscious passenger prior to the initiated descent, but I can’t speak to what may have been the specific cause of their feeling ill.”

“The passengers were evaluated by medical responders on the ground in Buffalo and were released; none were transported to the hospital,” Snow said.

The airline said it was making plans to transport the passengers to Hartford, Connecticut.

The Federal Aviation Administration said initial information indicated the Embraer E170 jet may have had a pressurization problem, but that turned out to be incorrect.

Snow said the plane’s oxygen masks did not release.

“After examination by maintenance personnel and local authorities, there have been no indications of a pressurization problem or other issues with the aircraft,” Snow said. “Our investigation is ongoing.”

Useless Political Calls Have Begun

talking on the phone

Yes the political season’s useless phone calls have begun.  Today I received my first from down South asking how I like the choice of candidates I’ve been given to vote for.

My reply was I like Elmer Stick, Low Up Is, and Mary Climbthemountain.  I ended my conversions with, “I don’t think anyone will beat My Pie In Myface.”

Concerns Of How People Feel About The Whole Foods Transaction

writing_letter

Some comments from concern citizens:

Niagara Falls already IS a tourist attraction.

WholeFoods is a grocery store   Amherst is a great town. We should not have to bribe businesses with millions and millions of taxpayer-funded credits to build or come here. They have nothing to lose. While the taxpayers lose plenty.

The benevolence of the AIDA with other people’s money is astounding. It does not take a genius to figure out taxpayers are getting bilked. Just think what infusing Amherst with $90 million+ could do and buy.

Will the benefits of all these generous tax credits ever outweigh the cost to taxpayers?  Hasn’t happened yet.

Westwood DGEIS Document

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
From a concerned citizen:
 I went down to the Planning Department (which BTW is called the Planning Board on the placard in front of the door), and took a look at the infamous Westwood DGEIS document.  Well not the whole document, just volume 1 of 6, the top level document.  The other documents contain detailed information supporting the material in the top level document.

This thing is HUGE (to borrow a very annoying reference).
