This morning, while flying back to Boston, there was an announcement that there was a ground stoppage due to an emergency situation (why an active shooting at the Navy Yard in Southeast DC should shut down an airport in Arlington, Virginia escapes me, but one can never shit one’s pants too much I suppose; why not shut down Dulles? Or Richmond? Can never be too safe…).
But I digress. Did the CNN news that we’re forced to watch break from commercial and tell us what the emergency is? Of course not.
