Aero-News: Quote of the Day
ANN's Quote of the Day usually derives from current news, though we reserve the right to pick quotes out of history that have a bearing on the day's events and issues.
Sometimes, you'll find them timely and in keeping with the content of the day's news... and sometimes, they'll just be thought-provoking.
Reader suggestions and comments are welcome... and if particularly intriguing, timely, or poignant, may themselves become future Quotes of the Day.
Let us hear from you, folks!
Aero-News Quote of the Day
"OK, folks... ANN did not suddenly lose its mind (though, there ARE moments... oh, never mind).
Check the DATE. 04.01.12.
It's April FIRST... a/k/a APRIL Fool's Day.
If you believed ANY of this stuff, you have been fooled, bamboozled, and otherwise become yet another victim of our annual attempt to enjoy the First day Of April with a little imagination and a LOT of nonsense. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did."
