"is it on fire?"

so, i know this is old news, but i just watched the segment during which larry king butchered covered the jetblue 292 landing at lax the other week. on a live feed. and that is the question asked by larry king WHILE THIS WAS HAPPENING. no, larry. that's not fire, it's three hundred sparklers attached to the landing gear.


a sampling of other questions asked:

"does it look like they're coming in for a landing?"

"has the runway been foamed?"

"do you think the passengers are listening to us right now?"

"is it landing?"

"is there any chance it might burst into flames?"

"are people in need of psychiatric help?"


someone, please: get this man a brain.

Larry is such a bastion of journalistic creativity. Where is Geraldo Rivera when you need him!

Don't forget, "Are there firetrucks lined up along the runway?" [no firetrucks near runway] Was he even watching the plane land? I think he was doing his hair in the dressing room when they handed him a mic.

I hope they weren't listening to Larry King or they would have had no idea what was going on.
