What was your worst experience on a flight?

On a TWA flight from Chicago to Kansas City in 1965... About 10 minutes before landing in KC, we had a fire break out and smoke filled the entire cabin. Fire engines were racing along side us as we landed at the end of the runway. Those 10 minutes felt like 10 hours.

Gov. Brownback is proposing raising taxes on alcohol and cigarettes to balance the state budget. What do you think?

I encourage an increase in the "sin" taxes. They are destructive, costly forces in our community and society. If these products were new to the market place today they couldn't even get FDA approval because of the impact on life and health.
