    That seems too logical. Where's the drama...the conspiracy? Dang I ran out of popcorn anyway.

It always gives me that warm fuzzy feeling when I see them and, as long as I do see them, I am not going to worry. When they are no longer around, that will be the time I will worry. As it is, I sleep well hearing them fly over every night.
    It was very strange after 9/11/2001 when all but military/gov't flights were grounded. If you heard a jet, it was rare except on scrambles.

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.

    Even more strange when you heard a little private plane fly over. Not many of those were allowed to fly, but more than most expect were. Most people don't realize how small, general aviation aircraft are a part of their everyday lives. For example, millions of cancelled checks are regularly moved amongst banks using general aviation aircraft. There's other stuff too. Stuff you normally don't think about.

    Get a grip, dude!

    I was making fun at all the tinfoil hat people like Navy Seal.

    It's hard to go anywhere in the Central Arkansas area WITHOUT seeing a C-130 fly overhead.

    On Sunday the Wife and I went by the LRAFB and their new C-130 display and she stated that she didn't realize that we lived so close to the airbase and said that now she knew why we saw so many C-130 around our home.

    My apologies. The sarcasm was lost on me. After a few of these idiotic responses to a simple observation, I'm sure you can understand.
