Alright, this article is not the most important of the week, but it’s probably the funniest.

A Spirit Airlines plane loaded mostly with serious golfers on its way from LaGuardia Airport in New York City to Fort Lauderdale, Florida was struck internally and in mid-air by a sickening odor. Passengers experienced “burning throats and chest pains.”

The plane made an unscheduled landing at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, about ten victims were rushed to the hospital, the remaining 210 or so passengers gathered on the runway and just inside. Finally, around 3:00 am, an evacuation plane became available and it flew the remainder to Fort Lauderdale where they arrived around 5:00 am, about 5 hours after the originally scheduled landing.

From there, life went on. The Spirit Airlines plane was inspected by rescue crews and absolutely nothing was found. With hindsight, it seems likely that dirty socks from a single passenger gave off an awful scent and caused some passengers to sicken and be rushed to the hospital. Yet, things weren’t worse than that.

New York’s NBC News reported, “HAPPENING NOW- An odor that smelled like ‘dirty socks’ made some passengers so sick after leaving LaGuardia, that their flight was diverted! We’re live with details @NBCNewYork starting at 4am #nbc4ny.”

That was the 4:00 am flash, but there was nothing behind it except details about the emergency grounding at Myrtle Beach and the rescue evacuation from there to Fort Lauderdale around 3:00 am.

So, much ado about nothing (except dirty socks). Still, the overall scenario is absolutely hilarious.

IF THE SCIENCE IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE, JUST TRY THREATS

It’s clear that good science does not support the extreme claims of the climate alarmists. Yes, there is such a thing as climate change, but it’s slow, difficult to predict and almost impossible to model because of the complexity of the process. The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
