        1. I'd like to think our esteemed military would at least have top notch flight training, no matter how the pilot got there. I could be wrong, though. It's those commercial pilots I worry about.
          I used to drive a bus that fed a small regional airline. It occurred to me that the pilots and I had basically the same job, but they had snazzy epaulettes and hats.
