5980: Snoring And Soaring.
Tired news in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Two pilots were spanked and fired for sleeping during a Hawaiian Go airlines flight with 40 passengers on board. The two failed to respond to repeated calls from air traffic controllers for about 17 minutes, and even flew past the arriving airport. No word if the pilots were charged a fee for the extra bags under their eyes.
• Linens ’n Things appears closer to falling asleep forever, as its chief financial officer left the failing company after a 20-year stint. Guess he’s moving on to better ’n Things.
• Don’t sleep on this. The 2008 ADCOLOR® Award winners have been named, with Russell Simmons nabbing the All Star trophy. Congratulations to the honorees.
