New Airline in Delray Has First Crash; No Pets Were Injured

Oh, the humanity! Or, technically, the lack of humanity -- because, technically, the passengers were pets and... oh... actually, the "crash" that caught my eye in this article is referring to the server for booking flights on Delray Beach-based Pet Airways. Which is the only good kind of crash in that industry, because even in an economic torpor, Americans will pay to put their pets on expensive planes.

Which is adorable, I'll admit. At least until a Pet Airways flight collides with a 747 full of humans.
