Daddy's Little Girl

(ChattahBox)—The daughter of the disgruntled anti-government pilot who deliberately crashed his plane into an Austin, Texas IRS building, after burning down his own house, says her father is a “hero” for standing up to the “system.” Joseph Andrew Stack flew his Piper Cherokee airplane into an office building housing nearly 200 IRS workers, killing himself, one other person and injuring many others. It was a miracle that there were not more fatalities, as investigators suspect that he tore out the seats in the plane and loaded it up with additional fuel, to create a larger explosion.


The rotten apple doesn't fall far from the rotten tree.

Fit as a Fiddle


Clinton, 63, was released from New York Presbyterian Hospital's campus at Columbia University early Friday morning "in excellent health".


"In excellent health". I guess that means that after a quadruple bypass in 2004, further surgery to remove scarring and fluid build-up in 2005, and now the insertion of two stents, he wouldn't be turned down by an insurance company because of a pre-existing condition.

Are the editors at TIME on a grammar fast? Just asking.
