"The big switch brought far more flights over areas of the city and suburbs directly East and West of O'Hare. It has triggered record number of O'Hare noise complaints, many from residents who said they were blindsided by the blitz of planes over their homes."

Well, should all doctors make the same? Should all lawyers make the same? Many, many CEOs have worked their way up the rungs of the corporate ladder. And, I'm sure they worked hard to get where they are. Leadership costs a hell of a lot more than a sales rep or whatever. Really depends on where one is comfortable in this 21st century food chain. I find it odd that you have such a problem with "corporate" America and the people that actually make it work, yet you seem to have no problems with someone getting rich simply because their parents were famous. Those are the "born with silver spoon in mouth" that contribute little, IMO.
Well, in our case, all doctors make the same salary, which is more than enough, based on Health plan fee schedules. You're free to choose your own doctor which means you can switch if you feel your own is not up to par.

Comparing lawyers' and doctors' remunerations is like comparing apples and oranges. Doctors are a must in anyone's life. Lawyers, though oftentimes necessary, specially if one's a criminal,are not a must. That is why they can charge what they want.

I never said CEOs and their directors were overpaid, though many are. Peons, in their own category, do work up the ladder and deserve performance pay, bonuses and raises. Not right that the CEO and his crew get salary raises that are far greater than their workers'. Not just that, let's say the CEO who makes $5 million a year gets a "fair" raise of 2%, as per his workers, and said workers average $60,000. Well, the CEO will get a $100,000 raise and the worker a $1,200 raise. Hmmmph, the CEO's raise alone is greater than the worker's salary. And, that is at 2%, which is a never-never for CEOs, even at incompetent and disaster-prone GM. I have no problem with "corporate" America and the people that actually make it work,"

But funny you should mention '"and the people that make it work. Are you referring to the workers also or just the higher echelons of the corporate structure?
As to Chelsea Clinton, you underestimate her preparation and hard work. She was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, yes, but the speaking fees she receives she has earned , it's not money coming from her parents, even though their reputation did launch her speaking tours. Do you know the time and preparation it takes to address an audience, often an audience of specialists in many disciplines? The hard work? Again, I ask you, and as the president's and future president's daughter, what is she to do? Refuse speaking engagements? Or legally bar her from the tour? I think not. Equality has nothing to do with that.

Equality is a lower middle class boy from Arkansas, Clinton, or a poor black boy with divorced parents, raised by his grandma, pulling up their bootstraps and becoming president. That kind of stuff is what makes your country great.

I was the COMSEC account holder for three Army units and I dealt with the same COMSEC key lists that the Walker brother were selling to the Soviets.
The N. Koreans captured the USS Pueblo in 1968 so they could get the black-box (it was really grey) and between the black-box and the key listed provided by the Walker brothers they could decrypt our secrete messages!
I hope he enjoyed the money the $oviets paid him!!!

Convicted Spy Arthur Walker Dies in Prison
The Virginian-Pilot | Jul 10, 2014 | by Lauren King
Arthur Walker, one of four men convicted of selling secrets to the Soviet Union during the Cold War, has died in federal prison. He was 79.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons website confirmed that he died this month. A spokesman said he died over the holiday weekend, and Walker's family told Pete Earley, who wrote "Family of Spies: Inside the John Walker Spy Ring," that he died Friday of acute kidney failure.

Walker was serving three life sentences plus 40 years for copying and conspiring to deliver secrets to the Soviet Union. He was sentenced in 1985.

They, and maybe you, nevertheless located near the airport. So much for that. Like the people here in Ottawa STILL , to this day, moving near the airport. Why? When it does get busier and they add more flights, and change flight paths to their areas, they'll complain. With no justification, else, why'd they move there in the first place?

Also, and I know this for a fact, plane noises have been greatly reduced in the last 20 years. Engines are minimum 50% quieter than they were 20 years ago, and noise abatement procedures, albeit increasing risks, also greatly contributed to noise reductions.

And YOU can hear them from YOUR house? My old house in Clayton County, GA was about ten miles from the Atlanta airport which was usually the side they approached from (engines at low power settings) but every now and then they would have to switch the take off and landing directions if the wind switched and it was a little noisier. But when I bought my house, I new exactly where the airport was!!!
Hind, if you move near an airport, shut the F-up about the aircraft noise!!!

I agree. Be a Theodor "Ted" Kaczynski who was from Evergreen Park, Illinois and obviously did not like the noise so he moved to Lincoln, Montana to get away from the noise. I wonder why Learning to Wread does not move to some little island in the middle of the Pacific to get away from the noise so he can shut the F-up about the noise!!!

Who are you to say what is enough for someone else? I still haven't heard what is Chelsea an expert in? What is she asked to speak about? Neither Clinton nor Obama have an ounce of integrity in their entire body. This post of yours is damn near funny.

Chinook helicopters have 'relief' tubes under the pilots seat which leads to a venturi under the aircarft which atomizes 'the liquid". Well I was on a mission in the U.K. at an Air Force base which had FB-111s and we had parked our Chinooks between the DB-111 shelters.
The next morning they has arrested a civilian clerk typist who had gotten onto the ramp (very bad thing to do at a nuke site) and hen caught was kicking this black plastic thing while blowing on another one she had broken off two of our Chinook helicopters. The SPs had asked us how bad our Chinooks had been damaged and we just laughed. I wonder if anyone had told her that the double-ended horn she was blowing on was a relief ventui?
Now these are picture of instrument venturis but they are about the same size as a relief venturi are.

Oh, here is a picture of an early model Spitfire with a two-bladed, fixed-pitch propeller (on the nose) and an instrument venturi (below cockpit).
Early in WWII they switched to American-made Hamilton Standard, constant-speed propellers. Oh, they removed the Hamilton Standard markings so the Germans would not know they were getting stuff from America!

https://www.google.com/search...

Yep, the German ME109s had constant speed propellers at the beginning of their war with Britain while the Brits did not and that was one of the reasons why the German planes were out performing the British planes.
But by the time of the Battle of Britain, the Brits were getting American constant speed propellers.
