The [Monday] Papers

"An Illinois-based Air National Guard unit that specializes in refueling aircraft in mid-air is being deployed to help establish a no-fly zone over Libya, state military officials said Sunday," the Sun-Times reports.

"The 126th Air Refueling Wing, which is based at Scott Air Force Base in southwest Illinois, and its subordinate unit, the 906th Air Refueling Squadron, will be part of United Nations-backed effort to establish a no-fly zone."

The 126th is also on Facebook, as is Scott. Scott is also on Twitter.


Flyin' DPOD Presents . . . the venerable KC-135:

"Indispensable airborne gas station to all aircraft in the U.S. inventory and many allied ones since 1956, from B-52s to F-22s. What General Patton said of tanks is equally applicable to airplanes: They gotta have gas!"

Blago Territory
"A federal judge in Chicago said Monday he doesn't think a motion by former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to cancel his upcoming retrial is serious and declined to formally rule on the request," AP reports.

"Judge James Zagel told attorneys at a status hearing that he doesn't have the authority to call off a trial. He added that he expects the motion 'to go away by itself' and 'vanish into thin air.'"

If only Blago would do the same.


Everyone's gonna make that joke, but maybe I got there first?

With the Rev. Michael Pfleger once again facing reassignment from his beloved St. Sabina, now is an opportune time to dip into Robert McClory's Radical Disciple: Father Pfleger, St. Sabina Church, and the Fight for Social Justice.

And that's just what I did.
