Congratulations to Marine Corps Capt. William Mahoney,  who successfully landed his AV-8B Harrier jet with a collapsed front landing gear.   This video is  a demonstration  of spectacular skill and steady nerves.

Flunking the flag…

leave a comment »

DHS apparently doesn’t have an  American flag  lying around to check,  since it issued a press release noting the  “15 stars and stripes”  on our flag.   There have been 13 stripes for 196 years,  and 50 stars since 1960.   Prospective American citizens have to know that.   Why doesn’t DHS?  Or is it yet another agency which can’t be bothered to verify anything?
