  1. What if Right sizing means getting rid of a large percentage of the fleet? Should a government help pay the rent or loan payments for underutilized/stored aircraft? I don't how many Westjet aircraft (or other airlines) are currently in long term storage but it seems foolish to throw money in that direction. Might be better off having the government subsidize NavCanada and help the airports in exchange of lower operating fees than to interfere while normality is far away and the airlines need to "right size" to this new normal.

  2. I believe there is over 160 mutations or variations of the virus that causes the common cold that constantly circulate. That's why there is no vaccine: you can't hit that moving target.

  3. Hi lupin, I guess it was the wings that made me see the B-787 but now that you point it out the Concorde is there. That bird is a Gannet and the wings just look like they are designed to be in the air rather than on the ground. Here is one that I think is even more like the Concorde at the pointy end. It is a Masked Booby which I saw off the coast of Brazil. Really elegant looking bird. I have to think that Nature figured out design for flying a while ago.

  4. Only in "Smallville" out here On my way to get groceries this morning I stopped at a new gas station quite near the Mall to get a cup of hot chocolate. As I walked up, I noticed 2 police officers watching a woman who was smoking while fueling her car. I saw her and thought, is this lady stupid, crazy, or both, especially with the police standing RIGHT there..But anyways, I minded my own business and went inside and got my beverage. As I was paying for my drink, I heard someone screaming!! Like I’m talking violent death screams!! I looked outside and I saw that this woman's arm was on fire!! She was swinging her arm, running around going nuts!! Like she was bat sh!t crazy. When I got outside, the police had the woman on the ground and they were putting the fire out!! Then they put handcuffs on her and threw her in the police car. I was thinking, arrested?? Shouldn’t she be in an ambulance, not a police car!?? And being nosy, I asked the police what they were arresting her for.The officer looked at me, dead serious, and said,"Waving a firearm" !!
