The Fly-Over on Opening Day is not a Devil Ray

It occurred to me as 4 jets rumbled past my house on their way to Fenway Park, who is flying these planes? It would seem that any pilot worth his or her salt is sitting on a runway in Iraq or on an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf. These pilots must have been trainees, or something. Did they actually find Fenway? Could they smell it from that high up? And so much for the Red Sox’s carbon footprint today. The Green Monster, indeed!

And, by the way, can we finally take down the black POW/MIA flags. Do you really think there still American soldiers rotting away in Vietnamese prisons? Forget it, you probably do.
