Massa, a Corning resident who unseated John R. “Randy” Kuhl Jr. in the 29th Congressional District in 2008, said in a brief statement his cancer, which had been in remission, had returned

I did not vote for him.  If Massa truly has cancer, I wish him well, and the take the first bus out of town.  Massa has been a bad joke.  As for the guy Mass beat, Randy stay in Penn Yan [2].

“Sully” packs it in:

NEW YORK, March 3 (Reuters [4]) – The pilot who spectacularly landed a crippled U.S. Airways (LCC.N) passenger jet in New York’s Hudson River last year is retiring, the airline said on Wednesday.

All 155 passengers and crew aboard Flight 1549 bound for Charlotte, North Carolina, escaped after pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger glided the plane to an emergency landing in the icy river within view of Manhattan skyscrapers

If it will take California one hundred billion for a high speed rail link between Los Angelos and San Francisco,  how far will the Obama’s administration eight billion get you?   To Chicago to Gary?

If the O trains reach their promised top speed of one hundred fifty miles per hours, isn’t flying still faster?
