What Would Amelia Do?

You know, what with everything with an R after its name taking every single opportunity on the planet to be just the biggest penile implant that ever was, it’s easy to overlookHOW FUCKING AWESOME CHICKS ARE:

A finger bone fragment, DNA samples, a photo showing a wheel protruding from water.Amelia Earhart disappeared 75 years ago, but the clues continue to surface.

On Tuesday, Secretary of StateHillary Rodham Clinton is set to meet with historians and scientists as a new hunt is launched for the wreckage of Earhart’s Lockheed Electra plane.

The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery will begin the search in June, according to the Associated Press, off the remote island of South Pacific island of Nikumaroro, in the nation of Kiribati.

    May I add how the disappearance of Amelia Earhart has so consistently captured the imagination of the public. Although the event was and is a tragedy, so much good has come from spurring people’s imagination in travel, aviation, space (not limited to space travel), etc.

    Right? I’m afraid of speed, fire, falling, small spaces and heights to a certain degree, and get punishing vertigo jogging across the Lombard-Eisenhower pedestrian bridge, but I read this article and wanted to throw on a bomber jacket and go do some barrel rolls.

    Both Dr A and I are Amelia obsessives.

    Does spending hours and hours reading news articles and websites devoted to Earhart and Noonan’s disappearance count as “obsessive?”
    I remember first hearing about Earhart on the 1970s version of Walter Cronkite’s You Are There television show.
    Thanks for the link, Athenae.

    Okay, different Noonan. Comment still stands.

    Noonan didn’t disappear; she slid off the chair to make peace with the floor.
