If you can fly to DC in a private plane and park it (overnight or longer) you are rich – whether you own the plane outright or not.
Private plane parking at Dulles is expected to be down more than 50%.
“We expect about 300 private aircraft this inauguration,” says David Mould, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.
“We have parking areas at Dulles Airport that will accommodate a number of aircraft, but when those begin to fill up, we will move them out onto the runway area that we have reserved for this purpose,” he says.
The western-most runway was set to close Thursday night. The airport’s three other runways will remain open.
The airport also closed a runway for Obama’s first inauguration. For that event, 700 private aircraft arrived, a record there.
Hopewell, N.Y. — Provisions of the Affordable Care Act — the federal health care law commonly known as ObamaCare — have Finger Lakes Community College examining the workload for its adjunct professors to avoid what the college said could be hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional health insurance costs.
You mean you didn’t see this coming? Not only is the adjunctification of Higher Education continuing, but it will be handled by even more people as adjuncts teach fewer sections to limbo in under the ObamaCare bar.
And much as I love the model at These Colleges, I understand that we’re the carriage trade. Many more people attend or teach for community colleges than ever pass through the selection process at liberal arts colleges.
Whether or not you know who Khedive Ismail was, you might read this.
Hire an assassin to kill his avatar! Really! This Chinese father seems to have done that. Reaction is mixed. I think it makes sense.
This is sounding worse and worse.
All this—the FBI spying on the CIA—constitutes the government attacking itself. Anyone who did this when neither federal criminal law nor national security has been implicated and kept the president in the dark has violated about four federal statutes and should be fired and indicted. The general may be a cad and a bad husband, but he has the same constitutional rights as the rest of us.
No keen observer could believe the government’s Pollyanna version of these events. When did the CIA become a paragon of honesty? When did the FBI become a paragon of transparency? When did the government become a paragon of telling the truth?
Pretty horrifying. Either Jon Corzine (former governor of New Jersey and senator) and his company stole lot of money or it didn’t. Shouldn’t be a partisan question. But it is.
6) I did not witness a single Red Cross Truck or FEMA Vehicle or in lower Manhattan. Recall the assistance these agencies provided after 9/11 – this is NOT HAPPENING. There are bound to be hundreds of elderly people, rich and poor, who live on the upper floors of buildings with elevators that are now disabled. IF POWER IS NOT RESTORED, THIS WILL MOVE FROM BEING AN ECONOMIC DISASTER TO A HUMANITARIAN DISASTER.
For everyone who thinks government does it better – go read the whole thing.
Why all good Republican children are raised to pray for a rainy (or snowy, up here) first week of November. Because WE know that Republicans exercise their franchise in greater proportion than the Democrats. Because, you know, think what you will, we take citizenship more seriously than people who are discouraged by bad weather.
I, of course, have the delight of voting for 3rd and 4th party candidates, because I know the state as a whole will pull the Government Teat Lever.
I know that I sometimes complain because people in England with metal detectors find such interesting stuff.
Can’t complain about this American find.
Quiet recluse turns out to be rich. Based on the weight of the gold, $7 million rich. But lots of the pieces are old, so the value may go up.
