Aliens and Global Warming.
much in this world that isnt
predictable. Not many things happen that
someone would never see coming until it
was too late. Most of us have been
blind-sided once or twice, but who
couldnt foresee the lawsuits in the
crash of the Cirrus SR-20 into a New York
apartment building October 11 of last
year (2006)? It didnt take more
than a month or two before the lawyers
were on to that one like flies on fresh
The pilot of that
plane, baseball pitcher Cory Lidle, could
not have picked a better (or worse) place
to fly into a building. The New York City
Bar Association claims 23,000 members.
Need an attorney? He came to the right
place. With 23,000 in the neighborhood,
theres no lineups, no waiting. And
he couldnt have chosen a worse (or
better) building to fly into. It was an

Important people with big money.
The NTSB, at this
writing, has yet to release its
probable cause report.
However, that makes no difference, as the
rush of finger pointing gets going before
the finger pointers can become confused
with the facts. So far, the family of the
deceased pilot is suing the companies
that built the aircraft, the propeller
and the engine. One resident of
the target building, a dentist whose
patients include Bruce Springsteen and
Donald Trump, has filed a lawsuit against
the estate of the unfortunate pilot and
his on-board flight instructor for
damages to his apartment.
Another issue has
to do with the insurance from Major
League Baseball. Cory Lidles estate
stands to collect well over $1million
dollars if its shown he was not
actually flying the airplane. So it gets
more and more complicated. This story is
certainly not over yet. That too
is predictable. Stand by for more.

item in the news thats worthy of
some thought. Alien spaceships,
which not many of us have actually seen,
are apparently for real.
Governments know about them, but
its all kept hushed up, lest the
uneducated masses rise up in panic.
We know this now, since former
Canadian defence minister, Paul Hellyer,
told an Ottawa newspaper he wants
governments to stop hoarding their secret
alien technologies and use them to stem
global warming. He says the
advanced propulsion systems from captured
UFOs could be used in our aircraft
to eliminate the burning of fossil fuels.
In the past, Mr. Hellyer has
announced that aliens are for real and
that he has personally seen a UFO.
He also believes that President Bush
foresees building a military base on the
moon to defend earth from an alien
attack. Mr. Hellyer was a Liberal
national defence minister in the mid
1960s, and is now eighty three.
systems. So thats what they
use. No one would suspect a
half-century old Continental or Lycoming
engine would be powering those UFOs
but it makes you wonder what knowledge
the little green men possess that
were still searching for.
No one really has
all the answers. Thats
because so many questions keep us
thinking, and before we can solve one of
the worlds problems, another one
pops up. Can attorneys sort out
the Cirrus crash case? Who should
pay for the damages to those peoples
apartments? Can the insurance
companies successfully sue the pilot?
Who was the pilot? Is an
aircraft manufacturer actually
responsible for the death of two young
men? And what about those little
green men and their UFOs?
Its all more food for
thought at your next coffee break.
