Left Seat, Big Hardware: Is 'Airline Pilot' Still the Wannabe Career for Our Kids?9:59 PM
O.K., for full disclosure, not ALL young boys dreamed of being a pilot. Known as "Danny P. Dot" (my very first official screen name?) back in 1961, I used to say "garbageman" when asked at five-years-old about my career aspirations. Yeah baby, the thought of hoisting heavy plastic cans of someone's fetid trash onto my shoulder and then dumping it into a stinky, noisy truck was oh so cool. Or not. Maybe it was Cowboy. Or Astronaut. Or Fireman. Whatever.
