I Know How They Feel


Much has been made about a reported UFO sighting late last year by United Airlines workers at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.  Reading this followup story, I was immediately drawn to this quote:

“To fly 7 million light years to O’Hare and then have to turn around and go home because your gate was occupied is simply unacceptable,” said O’Hare controller and union official Craig Burzych.

I’ve had the misfortune to fly into O’Hare on busy days only to spend an hour or so waiting for a gate so I know exactly how the aliens felt.

Of course, FAA officials are saying that it was a weather phenomenon which brings to mind this graphic.
