Desensitizing New Yorkers to Low-Flying Jets Chased By Fighter Planes

So they fired a White House staffer, and promised it wouldn't happen again (really?) ...and released the photo. Even though this was an incredibly ill-conceived and thoughtless political stunt, which caused literal panic in the streets of New York, and cost the better part of a half-million dollars for a photograph, I don't want to make more of this incident than it merits.

But at a minimum, it means we shouldn't have to hear about the "Mission Accomplished" banner ever again.....like that'll happen.
