Great take on an unusual folo story

Don't know if any of you read the Washington Post's story about a rookie F-16 pilot who was one of a couple pilots scrambled on Sept. 11, 2001 with orders to crash their unarmed fighter planes into Flight 93.

Turns out that she didn't mention one huge part of the story to the reporter: That her father was a United Airlines pilot who flew 757s from the East Coast -- meaning he could have been the pilot on Flight 93. I thought the Post handled that "holy cow" folo story with just the right touch.

Reporters reading this, you have to click on the story to see how the Post found out that piece of information. Tell me you haven't been there in one way, shape or form.
