Trust but verify: here's why you shouldn't rely on the KC Star when you plan your schedule

John Landsberg points out a goof-up in the KC Star's Preview magazine.

If you see a bunch of people staring at the sky today at Wheeler Airport in Kansas City please be kind to them.

It is likely those poor souls read the Kansas City Star's Preview magazine (8/20) that informed them that the KC Airshow was starting on Friday.

The airshow runs Saturday and Sunday.

This is what happens when you lay off too many copy editors.

I was wondering what was going on. I didn't think a bunch of strangers were interested in me shooting touch and go's.

AP Source: $2 Trillion Higher Deficit Projected (New York Times)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A White House budget official says the Obama administration expects the federal deficit over the next decade to be $2 trillion bigger than previously estimated.

The projection now is for a deficit of $9 trillion. The new figure reflects a worse economic picture than expected earlier this year.

The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because new budget projections will not be announced until next week.

Ten-year forecasts are volatile figures subject to change over time. But the higher number will likely create political difficulties ... and could create anxiety with foreign buyers of U.S. debt.

That's ok, just a bunch of right-wing nazis go to air shows anyway.
