Neil photographed one of the helicopters that ferried Congressional Medal of Honor recipients around town to various ceremonies today - in this case, parked outside the World Trade Center, where the recipients were holding their national convention.
Mad Ty photographed an airborne Blackhawk helicopter:
Because flying (mostly) senior citizens around in helicopters isn't sustainable. Having them bicycle or endure the T isn't so practical either, given the age and physical disabilities of many.
...killing machines and people who kill other people!
Instead of all this hullabaloo for our nation's heroes, we really should have a special "Ultra-Liberal Passive Aggressive – and Should Probably Just Get it Over With And Move to Canada Already – Yuppie Day" to celebrate all those who've done nothing for their country.
Outside of paying a good chunk of the taxes that afford us these types of helicopters.
Paying taxes is definitely equal in valor to putting your life on the line for your country.
I didn't compare the two, just saying that your average law abiding citizen doesn't "do nothing".
Well in that case, thanks for paying your taxes! It's not a civil duty required by law or anything.,
You're right, I think you should go up and let these Medal of Honor people know what you think of them.

One of the aircraft pictured is a medevac.
The other is a utility (cargo) aircraft. Specifically, since it's a National Guard helicopter, this one probably plucked victims off of roofs during Katrina and the like.

I was driving northbound at about 5:30 PM on the distressway heading for the tunnel when I noticed that no traffic was flowing southbound except for a string of MSP motorcycles. Had to be a motorcade of some VIP, but who? As I crawled northbound the answer came with more police vehicles etc. and a charter bus with its sign lit announcing Congressional Medal VIPs. After they passed, traffic was allowed to continue.
