I haven't cried since my boy was born, and today I cry for the parents and children in Newtown Connecticut.  I love my boy more than that word means and my heart is breaking for those affected by this horrific tragedy.

We all lost so much today.

 We don't have autothrottles in the Ultra, so during long cruise legs it's fun to try to get the speed right up to redline manually, without going over - our plane will overspeed in cruise if we set the throttles to maximum continuous thrust.  Our maximum Mach is 0.755, so I'm about 6/10ths of a knot from setting off the overspeed alarm.
