In a previous blog entry, I asked people to vote in a Plane and Pilot magazine poll for some software that I’m involved with. In that, I made an ironically cynical remark that “it can’t win against software that actually buys advertising in the magazine” – memories of the notoriously biased and down right fraudulent “Runners World” shoe surveys on the late 1970s and early 1980s and the like dancing in my head. Well, it turns out that Plane and Pilot Magazine, like most aviation publications, are straight shooters, and I insulted them gratuitously. For that, I apologize.
In the good news department, Plane and Pilot Magazine tells that we finished in the top five in the poll. Woo hoo.
Oh, and to give you another indication of why Plane and Pilot Magazine has gone way up in my estimation, the publisher himself posted a comment in my blog pointing out the insult, but NOT threatening me or asking me to apologize. And that’s why I think they deserve the apology.

Class act indeed.
