Default Centenial TFR

I just read that Bush will speak at the Kill Devils Hill bash. Does this
mean that the Wright Flyer won't be able take off?

Nothing else will be flying, how inappropriate.

I can think of nothing that better represents Bush's notion of
self-importance. If he really had a clue, he'd stay as far away from the
event as he could, so that Americans could celebrate the occassion
joyously by participating in this activity that we all love so dearly.
Instead, he chooses to shut it down, and put the focus on himself. Sheesh.

I get pretty down on Bush and then I realize that I'm being unfair. The
presidency is a very tough job and there is a lot more to it than being
intelligent, articulate, informed, and reasonable.

The Wright Flyer not being able to take off may have nothing to do with the TFR.

Good point. With Bush there, there won't be any shortage of wind. 8-)

Yeah, but he's not good at those other parts either.

So, you truly believe that Clinton, Johnson, Kennedy, Truman, or Roosevelt
wouldn't have gone to Kill Devil to speechify if it happened on their watch?

I'm saying that one should consider the consequences of one's actions. In
this case, if the actions serve to prohibit that which you are reputedly
celebrating, it should at least be cause for pause. What percentage of the
audience do you suspect will be receptive to the idea of a TFR being
imposed while they're being blown at? He should give the speech from the
White House lawn, where it can be duly ignored by those of us who'd rather
fly.

I guess you need the inflection of speech to appreciate the joke. When I
heard it, it was clear that the guy telling it meant to say that Jr. was
none of those things.

Well, I can't pick out who's being ironic and who isn't here.

With one view of the presidency, there actually *isn't* a lot more to it
than being intelligent, articulate, informed, and reasonable.

For another view what matters are all those personal characteristics like
decisiveness and charm. Which, of course, are incredibly dangerous when not
accompanied by being intelligent, articulate, informed, and reasonable.
