Good morning :
—Bravo. I love people doing something special when the odds are against them. And this young lad certainly had his share of them, but despite that he built the largest replica of the doomed Titanic and that took 11 months.
—Need to solve a problem that requires you to be creative? If so, you need to do this. I don’t want to give it away but research proves it.
— Meet Tammie Jo Shultz. She was impressive, a badass pilot, had nerves of steel. And her actions saved hundreds of passengers on that ill-fated Southwest Airlines flight this week.
