You know what was a great idea? To send a low-flying plane cruising down the Hudson river this morning, days after a dude was fired for authorizing a similar flight that scared New York.

Remember how the military sent Air Force One to New York to scare the shit out of Wall Street? (This was one of those "hedge fund death threats" everyone's bitching at Obama for, we are pretty sure.) And then Louis Caldera had to resign, because of this? Yes, well, you remember this, but apparently the Pentagon didn't.

The FAA sent out word this morning that "a military plane will fly up and down the Hudson" between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m.. Why? Who knows. Boredom. It's sunny out.

This seemed like a wonderful idea that wouldn't get anyone in trouble for exactly 30 minutes, at which point an email went out from the city's Office of Emergency Management's Notify NYC program announcing the cancellation of the flyover. Someone saved their job today.

Though this would've been a totally acceptable little exercise if they'd just announced that Sully was the one flying it.
