What the fuck were these idiots thinking?


BOSTON (AP) -- Officials at Boston's Logan Airport are apologizing for holding a fire drill, complete with smoke and flames, on the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The two hijacked jets that were flown into the World Trade Center towers that day had taken off from Logan.

The port authority has apologized in a statement and says it "understands that it may have offended many of those touched by the events of Sept. 11."

There will be "I was traumatized" lawsuits coming. (Which means Boston taxpayers will pay more to pay for it.) Dumbasses.

Wow, wonder who's genius idea that was?

My wife flew out of there this morning at 8:00 AM

It was unnerving.

Not just one, either. This was group stupidity. They had a committee, and everything.

I suspect that there were multiple committees coordinating on a drill like this.

Brought to you by the same brain trust that shut the entire metro area down and sent SWAT teams through neighborhoods, pointing guns at random peoples' windows, over a couple of teenage chuckleheads with pressure cooker bombs.

That's who.

Logan is actually controlled by Massport, which ... if you can believe such a thing is possible ... is an even more fucked up institution than the Boston mayor's office. I'm sure the state police and other agencies were involved in this ingeniously timed exercise.

Yes. Yes it is. Matched only by MBTA.

MBTA has always been a comedy act. Their newer fare cards are called "CharlieCards". After the song "Charlie on the MTA", about a man who was doomed to ride the train forever because he didn't have exit fare.



Did he ever return?
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearn'd
He may ride forever
'neath the streets of Boston
He's the man who never returned.


So this? This is par for the course.

I say fire the fuckhead who decided to do that shit today, but we know that will not happen.

Stupid should hurt but this was way beyond stupid.

In other words the decisions were made by people too stupid to get out of being on a committee or, worse yet, WANTED to be on a committee.
