Pulp Word Of The Day: "Narcoavion"

Remember that Gulfstream II jet that left Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport and wound up crashed in Mexico with four tons of cocaine aboard? Remember that the jet was previously associated with the federal government and runs to Guantanamo? Remember it had allegedly been recently purchased by a mysterious local airman named Clyde O'Connor? Remember that the local media has almost totally ignored the story?

Well, Jonah Meadows, a producer for National Public Radio in Chicago, has dug deep into the mystery and produced a wonderful report of uncommon breadth. If you click here, you can listen to his report (which includes the voice of the Pulp) and read the full text. Photos are here. Video of the Mexican news report on the crash is here.
