Guess what's on the State Dinner menu tonight.

Macroni and Cheetos-----

Somewhat of a nit but..

I don't know if this is the place to post this, but there has been a lot of discussion (in the media) on the poor outcome of the woman who died from the Southwest Airlines incident of the engine failure, the window breach and her being sucked out of the window.

The news reporting talks on this event as something being exceptional but they never reference a similar occurrence in 1973. A DC-10 was traveling to San Fran and they had an engine failure that extracted a passenger over New Mexico. I remember it well as the plane safely landed at Albuquerque. The passenger was only found two years later.

Just to make sure that people know that this isn't the first time and to recognize 2 losses of life.
