Tonight, on CSI: Lav Duty...
Call it Crime Scene
No, CBS isn't scraping the bottom of the barrel for television
shows (at least, not here)... rather, it's the latest news out of
England, where a lump of ice fell from the sky recently, and hit a
car belonging to 25-year-old Stephanie Cole.
The ice chunk -- which authorities say fell from an aircraft
passing overhead -- caused about $1,300 worth of damage... which
Stephanie had to pay for out of her pocket.
Or will she? As it turns out, Cole has a minister of parliament
in her corner... who says the Department of Transport should pay
for tests on the ice, to determine... that's right... which plane
it fell from, so the airline can then be called on to cough up the
That plan has run into opposition from the Civil Aviation
Authority... which says airlines have no control whatsoever over
those rare times when ice falls from a plane's fuselage.
Now, given that most chunks of ice that fall from planes are
from the aircraft's waste disposal system... we're not quite sure
how the identity of the plane would be determined from
analyzing the blue gift from above.
And frankly, we don't want to know.
