In other news (2008-01-10)

A couple of other items before I turn in tonight:

Talk about a harrow ride for the passengers on Air Canada 190 from Victoria to Toronto. The pilot deserves a heck of a lot of credit for taking over a plane that lost the autopilot over the mountains and did a sixty degree bank each way before the pilot straightened it out. Just a few injuries before landing in Calgary.

I'd be more worried about mechanical failure or pilot error than a terrorist the next time I fly which is why I've been earthbound for the last eight plus years.

And Sir Edmund Hillary died today. What can be said about the man who along with Tenzing Norquay conquered Everest and pushed Elizabeth II's coronation off the front page? Rest in peace, dude.
