As a sat down for lunch today after church, I heard this loud roaring sound fast approaching from the south.  “Military jets,” I thought to myself and ran outside to see. 

Nothing.

A few minutes later, another roar.  I went outside again.

A few more minutes passed.  That same roar, fast approaching and low, passed right overhead. 

For the third time, I ran into the backyard and this time saw, in the distance, four military jet fighters flying in formation. 

They were too far away for me to be able to identify them.

“What could he going on?” I thought.  Then it dawned on me.  It’s 9/11 and the Steelers are in town to plan the Bengals.  The fighter jets are probably doing a ceremonial flyover to start the game. In my case, there were three flyovers while they were in a holding pattern. 

Now, I’m not a pilot.  But I admit to being a bit of a fan of military aircraft.  The look, the speed, the formation flying, maybe especially the ground-shaking thunder of the engines. I’ve always looked at fighter jets with a bit of awe.

Then I had a sobering thought.  Didn’t Joe Biden just threaten all Trump supporters with F-15 strikes?  And hasn’t he said that sort of thing on more than one occasion?
