Cold and Icky

I taunted the lovely Mrs. Flash when I called her from Scranton yesterday. While you folks back home were dealing with gloomy skies and pouring rain, I was basking in warm sun and 70+ degrees. Well that all changed today. Pissing rain and low 40s that feel more like low 30s. That'll teach me to brag about being out of town in warmer weather.

I catch a red eye in the morning and will be home by 10:ish. I am ready to go now, but when you aren't in a city that is a hub you take what you can get.

If you haven't picked up on this story yet, be sure to check 'Still Free'. It s a video of a couple guys sneaking onto Andrews Air Force base and spray painting graffiti on Air Force One. It was so realistic it prompted the Air Force to do an inspection of the aircraft. The Filmographer later admitted the hoax and explained how they did it.
The pranksters responsible for the grainy, two-minute web video -- employed by a New York fashion company -- revealed Friday how they pulled it off: a rented 747 in California painted to look almost exactly like Air Force One.

"I wanted to do something culturally significant, wanted to create a real pop-culture moment," said Marc Ecko of Marc Ecko Enterprises. "It's this completely irreverent, over-the-top thing that could really never happen: this five-dollar can of paint putting a pimple on this Goliath."
