Jul 11th 2011 8:51PM My Father, who is now a consultant and still flying hit the one million mark back in 1967. He got a certificate for it from Pan Am. I am reasonably certain that he is well over 10 million mile mark, though not with a single airline and certainly without a confirmable record. Congratulations to Mr. Stuker for is loyalty.
Feb 19th 2010 9:32AM To state that Lysachek's victory implies that the sport is an artistic event not an athletic one revels only that the writer either did not watch the performances or has no clue about the rigors of the sport. If the premise that artistry not athleticism ruled the sport was true then Weir would have been on the podium not Pluskenko.
Weir's program was flawless, and artistically beautiful. Pluskenko delivered a flawed performance that was frankly lacking in choreographic artistry. Yet Pluskenko scored 10 points higher than Weir.
Lysacek delivered on a routine that was both athletic and artistic, he skated it nearly flawlessly, from the first position where the judging is traditionally a bit stingy. There is no question he deserved the score and the medal that he won.
I just do not see anything problematic with the result or the sport. I do see something inherently flawed in the reporters presumptions.
Feb 14th 2010 9:02AM removing him from the venue when he did not display the proper credentials was correct.. Banning him from watching his wife compete now that it is perfectly clear he is who he purported to be is- well to say moronic would be an insult to morons
