Boston Airport Apologizes For Holding A Fire Drill Involving Burning Plane On 9/11 Anniversary!

Filed under: Oops!

drill3(1)

Ugh. We…can't…even…

Officials at Boston's Logan Airport issued an apology after goofing big time!

Massachusetts Port Authority decided to hold a full scale fire drill at the airport in question, with smoke and flames and literally a mock plane on fire, on the 12th anniversary of 9/11.

We'll let those of you who were drinking while reading that last sentence continue your spit-taking for the next 3-5 minutes.

In their defense, Logan Airport tweeted that the smoke and fire were part of a drill, but not in their defense, who follows airports on Twitter?!

Meanwhile, Logan Airport's Facebook page received dozens of complaints, including one from an upset person who had this to say on the faux-pas:

"That is ridiculous. Have some respect. People died 12 years ago on flights originating out of your airport. How dare you."

Yeah, the last thing any traveler wants to see on 9/11 is smoke and fire on any airfield! What the shizz were they thinking?!

By noon today, Massachusetts Port Authority wised up and issued this apology:

Chris Christie Signs Bill Banning Gay Conversion Therapy!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal Matters

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie gave his big, long John Hancock to a law banning gay conversion therapy on Monday!

That's right, Christie signed his approval to legislation that forbids therapists from trying to change the sexual orientations of minors! Good man!

Although the Republican Governor previously vetoed a bill that legalized same-sex marriages in the state last year, this is a huge step forward for those who rightly believe that you should be able to marry whoever you want!

Christie must be finally getting the notion that you can dot your "i"s, but you don't cross your LGBTs!

Sad news? New Jersey is only the second state in the nation, aside from California, that's passed the gay conversion ban!

Hurry up, Amurica! This is the land of the free, not home of the brainwashed!

Michigan Governor Passes Bill That May Allow Wolves To Be Hunted! Boo!

Filed under: Animal RightsIcky Icky Dog PooWolfHunting

Seriously?

The governor of Michigan is obviously not a Wolverine fan as he's totally OK'd a bill that will allow the hunting of the gray wolf.

Not too long ago - the species was nearly driven to extinction, but since then has experienced something of a resurgence.

Feelings about wolves divide the public. Some feel they're a nuisance that prey on farm animals, while others respect their unfiltered wildness.

Here's what Governor Rick Snyder said:
