Republican Congress Members Reintroduce Bill to Take Away Disney World “No-Fly Zone”
United States Congressman Troy E. Nehls from Texas has reintroduced a bill that would rescind a “no-fly zone” at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. The Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM’s) prohibits aircraft from operating below 3,000ft over a portion of Walt Disney World and all of Disneyland.

Officially titled the Airlines Independent of Restrictions (AIR) Act, the bill specifically and exclusively targets the “no-fly zones” at Disney’s domestic theme parks, according to Rep. Nehls. Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia are also co-sponsors of the bill, among others. The only Florida representative co-sponsoring the bill is Rep. Greg Steube from a district that covers the Port Charlotte and Sarasota area.

I swear to fking gawd

Can these cretins be any more useless and pathetic in their servility??

Hall of Fame men's basketball coach Denny Crum dies at 86

Denny Crum, the Hall of Fame college basketball coach who led Louisville to two national championships in the 1980s, died Tuesday at the age of 86.

Crum played college basketball under John Wooden at UCLA in the late 1950s, then joined the Bruins' staff as an assistant under Wooden, helping the program to three national titles during his time there. Louisville hired the California native as its coach in 1971, and the program rose to national prominence under his watch.

Crum led the Cardinals to the Final Four six times -- winning national titles in 1980 and '86 -- and made the NCAA tournament 23 times in his 30 seasons. He oversaw Louisville's move from the Missouri Valley Conference to the Metro Conference to Conference USA, and his teams won 15 regular-season conference championships across the two different leagues.

In 1993, Crum became the second fastest coach to win 500 games. Nicknamed "Cool Hand Luke" for his calm demeanor, he had a 675-295 mark at Louisville before retiring in 2001.

A lot of kids got a chance at a college education who otherwise wouldn't have. Coach Crum often sought out the underprivileged and the underdog.

R.I.P, Coach
