Factoid of the Day

Believe it or not, Manfred von Richthofen — AKA the Red Baron, the most famous flying ace in history, with 80 confirmed kills — was by his own admission not a great pilot. He was decent, but his younger brother Lothar (with “only” 40 kills) was a much better pilot, though Manfred worried about him because he was reckless and took too many risks. Yes, that’s right: the von Richthofen family produced both a Maverick and an Iceman in the same generation. - Drew
From a review of frozen pizza on The Impulsive Buy. I just had some leftover Red Baron pizza for lunch and I thought the pepperoni was a tad spicier than normal, so I was checking to see if anyone else had noticed the same thing. The answer is no, which makes me think it's my hayfever and the Zyrtec conspiring to alter my perceptions.

P.S. Today's Pic of the Day is from the internment ceremony of Brigadier General Robinson Risner, a Vietnam era Ace.
