    “A helicopter landing was taken to the hospital for minor injuries after setting down hard in a field near an airport Thursday afternoon.” My question is how did they fit it in the ambulance (sarcasm).

    Do any of the writers EVER proof read their articles, or perhaps pass it on for proof reading to, ohhh say, an editor, good friend…anybody, before posting on the internet? This really…REALLY sounds stupid about “A helicopter landing was taken to the hospital for minor injuries”.
