Federal heavy, slow immediately

to match preceding aircraft. Over.

Jesus, wake up! Wake up!

The little girl asked me

if she could be an angel.

They all want wings.

Tell them the truth.

Angels aren't human.

We were never human.

What if I just make her

a little pair of wings out of paper?

Tell her the truth.

How did she take it?

She said, "What good would wings be

if you couldn't feel wind on your face?"

On the through
