    Most of us who have flown on commercial airlines probably don’t think about much, other than we hope the darn thing takes off okay, flies without crashing due to some kind of weather or mechanical related situation, and then lands safely.
    You know, those trivial little life and death things.

  • College football’s top four

    As much as I like controversial situations I don’t believe that I would want to be on the committee that decides the top four teams in the final college football poll.
    There is potential for several teams with legitimate claims to one of the spots to be left out while one of maybe less talent gets into the final four.
    It will be easy to eliminate some teams who before this past weekend had hopes to be in the final four.  
    Notre Dame may have been the highest rated team that laid an egg Saturday. The Fighting Irish are out of it.
