Number Two: Air France 447 could happen anytime, to any plane. The investigation has "brought to light a safety flaw that affects all jet airplanes currently in service." You did catch that, right? Every jet plane in service. Including the one you were going to take on your next family vacation.
Number Three: They let kids run air-traffic control at JFK. Just try not to think about it.
All this creates a bit of conundrum for Father Anonymous and his family. Unless steamship fares drop precipitously, or the Atlantic Ocean freezes over and becomes walkable, it appears we may have to stay on the far side of the pond ... forever.
