    The things we have learned about Skip since the accident are very troubling. I missed your interview on Channel 2 news but looked at it on my phone today. I remember from your blog how brave you were to take your ride and how much fun y’all had. I know this is weighing heavily on your mind. Just consider yourself very lucky. Hopefully the loophole that allowed Skip to fly will be changed.

I think I'm getting addicted to comments. Please feed the addict & leave a reply.
