John was telling me how he saw this news article about how much it cost the tax payers for the air force one fiasco in new york city the other day.  I was totally floored.  $300,000!!!!!!! Yes, you read it correctly, that’s how much it cost for the air force one to fly over ground zero/statute of liberty with fighter jet escort, and scare the crap out of the paranoid new yorkers. 

Of course, folks like Jon Stewart was able to come up with much more cost-efficient way to deal such tasks.  Jon Stewart’s solution seems sooo much more reasonable compared to 300k.  And there’s something else I found on NY Daily News called, “Create Your Own NYC Air Force One Flyover Photo.”  Pretty hilarious!
