I have stumbled across a column on Salon.com that I think you might like. It's called "Ask the Pilot" and it is authored by Patrick Smith, an actual pilot. I have seen his column before, but the most recent installment had me chuckling, so I thought I'd share with you.
Having spent quite a few hours on planes and in airports, I find his work to be insightful and funny. I also think the shit that people write in and ask him is the dumbest stuff ever.
Check it out.
