The Osprey Has Landed



Text  



Among the many stories the prestigious American monodailies presently being unloaded at fire-sale prices don’t have room to cover is this heartwarming report from the London Telegraph — the First Dog and his entourage flying in to Martha’s Vineyard on his own plane:

Bo, the president’s Portuguese Water Dog, arrived separately on one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane.

It was the first time the Ospreys have been taken on holiday by a US president.

You don’t say. That Romney sicko would have had the pooch in a crate on the wing of Air Force One.

If the President and Bo decide to take a dip, I do hope they’ve beefed up aquatic security by a few hundred extra Secret Submariners in case the waters off Masachusetts are menaced by the same testicle-eating fish currently terrorizing Sweden.
