That's OUR Crazy

Here's another one for the Which State Has More Crazies contest. A 69-year-old Missouri woman forced a plane to abort its landing when she walked out onto the runway and fired a .22 pistol at it. I guess she made her point, which was that planes fly too close to her house. That ol' gal must have been a bitter, prayin' gunclinger. Better put her on that terrorist watch list. Oops! We can't use the T word anymore. Put her on the man-made disaster watch list.

Gosh. Ol' Gal walked right through an airport, saying she was going to shoot a plane. You'd think we would be more security-conscious here in Missouri, what with so many hillbillies totin' guns around in their pockets, and especially after that nutty old man went and shot up the Holocaust Museum.

Missouri. Our old folks are mad as heck, and they ain't about to go to any end-of-life counseling session every five years. They will go out in a blaze of glory.

DAMN! How did she get TO the runway? We have a tiny little regional airport here in H'burg, and even there I don't think I could get a gun out to the runway.

Miss Ann,
You seem to have forgotten: this is MISSOURI. She just walked right thru the terminal area, saying she was going to shoot a plane. It must happen so often that nobody thought anything of it. Or maybe the person on duty was sleeping like a New York bridge security employee.

I will eagerly await your Mississippi Crazy rebuttal. It shouldn't take long.
