Remind you of anything?

I couldn't find any other confirmation of this letter to the editor.

Flight grounded

When Charles Keiser, of Garretson, S.D., got his license, he signed up to be an organ donor. He died a few days ago, and the organ harvest team's flight was grounded because President Bush's Air Force One was scheduled to land.

How in God's name can a fund-raiser be put ahead of a person's life? Bush could have placed that heart on Air Force One, and gotten it to its recipient faster than anyone on earth. Isn't that what America is all about?


Why, it's almost like the time Clinton got a haircut and held up traffic at LAX for hours. Except, well, nobody was denied an organ and it didn't even actually happen anyway.
