This is what a boring plane crash movie looks like
Film Review  October 6, 2017, by Marc Savlov
"...She’s Alex, a photographer late for a wedding, and he’s Ben, a pediatric surgeon racing to save a little boy’s life in New York City when the both of them are grounded by a severe winter storm. Dash it all! Extrovert Alex, for no apparent reason, approaches Ben with an offer: Why not pool their money and hire goofy old coot Beau Bridges and his trusty canine companion to fly them around the incoming storm? Well, for one, it’s crusty, twinkle-eyed Bridges, who comes off as a slightly more sober version of Jim Backus’ besozzled flyboy from It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World..."

"...City Council began its deliberations on CodeNEXT at a special called meeting Wed­nes­day, with a clear and unanimous recommendation from its top land-use commission. The city's Zoning and Platting Commission had voted Tuesday to send a formal letter to Council, city staff, and planning consultants, calling the proposed draft code "less clear and harder to use than the current code," saying that "the first CodeNEXT draft is incomplete, hard to understand, and will be difficult to use," and recommending "that the process be slowed down" and the code largely rewritten to scrap the current three-part structure and "provide a cohesive, unified, easy to administer code that can be used throughout the city."..."
