PIGEONS ON THE GRASS, ALAS: So I'm home for lunch, and Becky has Headline News on the tube, and they're discussing the day's near air catastrophe wherein a Qantas jumbo jet managed to safely land despite a big ol' massive hole in its fuselage, and the newsreader tells us that "alas, there are no fatalities." Alas?!?! At first I'm not sure I hear this right, but then I see from the closed captioning that the word "alas" really was used. Yeah, it's so disappointing that we didn't get to see a tarmac strewn with charred and bloody bodies . . .
