US Airways Flight 1549 and a Gaza protest nearby

First of all, I have a new hero, his name is Chesley B. Sullenberger, he rocks that pilot’s uniform, and he also rocks crash-landings into the Hudson. La Guardia to Charlotte on US Airways? I’ve gone that route many times. I’m still trying to figure out if anyone I knew was on that plane. Anyway, I’m just glad that everyone appears to be OK.

Second of all, here’s what’s going on in Amman today:


This is the only picture that came out somewhat decently (I really need to get my other camera fixed), and what you don’t see, unfortunately, is the abundance of Communist flags alongside Muslim Brotherhood flags. An interesting combination, if I may say so myself.

Anyway, the good news is, it was another peaceful protest. Not at all consistent with the popular FOX News imagery of those “ranting and raving A-rabs.” Considering all of the protests that have been happening here in Amman, I have received several concerned e-mails. But I’m fine, and, like everyone else, just waiting for a truce.
