Rocket's red(neck) glare
Every once in awhile, a front-page story comes along that reminds you Where. You. Live. You live in a state where people like to blast five-foot rockets into the sky. Out by the airport. Where passenger jets fly. All with the approval of the local FAA official (below, left).

OFGS wonders what future headlines could top "Rockets launched in Lexington flight path"…
