When I read the headline for this story I thought it was about state Republicans - then I remembered Doug Tice and Katherine Kersten - and the kid gloves Republicans are treated with in these pages - and thought again.

What were editors thinking when this headline was approved?? The article is a great snapshot of some of the 30,000 Minnesotans who will travel to Oshkosh and celebrate their freedom to fly. The headline is an insulting slap at those 30,000 and thousands more who enjoy general aviation.

After all, general aviation is only enjoyed by those nasty eeeeeeevil rich people...right, STrib editors? (Republicans? Kid gloves??!! Bwahahahahaha!) Despite what some might think, aviation is something everyone can enjoy, at just about any income level.

Go ahead and let the poor man build a bigger garage. Every man should have a larger than required shed to work in. If Pat keeps going bigger pretty soon he will have a hanger rather than a garage.
