The ghost in the Shell station

Brian J. Noggle explains what just happened:

George W. Bush has ginned up the fake "air terror" alert to make it inconvenient for you to fly. So you'll have to drive to your destinations and will have to buy gas at Big Oil's gouge — nay, plunge router! — prices.

On the upside, I can get a heck of a lot of fizzy drinks into the car; why, there are even designated locations for their placement.

Hmm, if Big Oil doesn't sell fuel to the airlines, who does? Big Pixie Dust?
If the price drops because of the excess caused by the planes not flying, what makes Brian think that the cars driving uses more fuel than a big huge plane?

Just how big IS Brian's @SSUV?

Hmm, that makes some sort of sense. I have only one defense:

WHY IS DWAYNE THE CANOE GUY DEFENDING BIG OIL? Could it be because Big Oil provides him the money to afford fuel for his CANOE!

Maybe I should have quit when I was behind.

Big Oil has nothing to do with my canoe (except that it's made of fiberglass) My canoe is powered by MY BIG GUNS!!!!

Next you'll be trting to tie sailboats & kites to BIG WIND!!! (but i know for a fact that Chaz has nothing to do with either of those.) ;p

Yup. That's why the threat was almost identical to the real bombing of Philippine airlines in the 1990's.
