YouTuber engineerguy wrote a book called Fatal Flight, which brings vividly to life the year of operation of R.101, the last great British airship—a luxury liner three and a half times the length of a 747 jet, with a spacious lounge, a dining room that seated fifty, glass-walled promenade decks, and a smoking room. The British expected R.101 to spearhead a fleet of imperial airships that would dominate the skies as British naval ships, a century earlier, had ruled the seas. The dream ended when, on its demonstration flight to India, R.101 crashed in France, tragically killing nearly all aboard.

Remember American Top 40 Countdown host Casey Kasem? As he was dying from Parkinson’s disease, his wife, Jean Thompson (best known for playing the blond bimbo trophy wife of Carla Tortelli’s worthless ex-husband Nick on “Cheers”) refused to let his own children see him, even after he had passed, and there was a very public scene where she was standing on the front lawn of their home, flinging raw hamburger meat at reporters camped outside.

The burning question here is, how has no one made a song about this yet? My high-school friend Erik Bell said, “I can’t believe no one has written a song about the time Casey Kasem was dying and his family was fighting over his body and his crazy bimbo wife was on the front lawn hurling raw hamburger meat at the paramedics. So it was time to step up. Not all heroes wear capes. Some of them play guitar in the garage late at night.”

For all the tired parents out there.

This is a touching article written by one of my best friends in high school. Please feel free to share it.

“At the beginning of his run for President, Donald Trump spoke at a rally in South Carolina. On November 24, 2015 in front of approximately 10,000 people and on camera, he physically mocked Serge Kovaleski, a disabled Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter. (ABC News Youtube link). In doing so, he told his listeners that a physical handicap makes you different than, and less than, someone else. He told America that a deformity means you deserve less respect, less humanity than someone who’s ‘normal’. He told you it’s ok to mock me.”
