"Blue Sky Airport", the local airport just outside of Normal, Mn., boldly announced on Tuesday that they would be banning all flights to Russia due to the high risks involved....as the bass fishermen at Betty Lou's coffee shop noted this morning, this was pretty much a ceremonial gesture...since all the planes at "Blue Sky" are just single engine Piper planes, and there is really no control tower, and pretty much the pilots do what they want...still...it was a bold move, and it captured the imagination of all the flying public, which just wish all airports across the nation could be like..."Normal."

Just got the tweet...that local employers were very pleased with the some 280000 jobs created in June 2014, and they hoped to create even more jobs in the coming months by reducing the effective wages of current employees by moving them to "On call" or hour to hour employees that could be sent home in cases of slower traffic of business, which was becoming a reality as customers were getting more and more dissatisfied with poor service caused by demoralized staff...still the upside is that all those temp workers caused the national numbers to skyrocket and thus it created the appearance of economic growth...nice....
