Wagstaff Says She's Sorry For Oshkosh Incident from AVwebFlash Current Issue
Air show pilot Patty Wagstaff says she's sorry for the "undue or unwanted attention to EAA or the local community" her incident with Oshkosh authorities may have caused on July 31 when she was arrested for driving drunk on a runway at Wittman Regional Airport after the airport had closed. Wagstaff pleaded no contest to first-offense drunk driving and a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest last Friday. She was fined $500, ordered to pay court costs and banned from driving for eight months. "I have accepted personal responsibility for my actions by pleading no contest to the remaining reduced charges. And despite statements or actions that some others have either attributed to me that evening or insinuated occurred, this outcome puts those rumors to rest as well," she said. Wagstaff said she's now focused on the coming season and Todd Simmons, vice president of marketing for Cirrus Design said the company will stick by her in sponsorship.

Tracking Santa from Twitter Blog by Biz
The fine folks at Norad and Google have apparently done so much math that they've come to believe Santa functions within a different spacetime continuum than the rest of us.
They've built a web site so it must be true. Once this was established, it made perfect sense to track Santa as he combines space and time into a single manifold. If all of this sounds a bit too intense, you can just follow his Twitter account: @noradsanta.
