Picture of the Day

PICTURE OF THE DAY….Here’s your photo of the day: a rickety old Convair cargo plane with a George Bush banner on its side was forced to ditch in a Florida lake today, and this picture was taken as it was slowly sinking out of sight. The misspelling of “elect” is just a little bonus.

(And don’t worry: it was an artificial lake and no one was hurt.)
