Some have reported seeing them. Perhaps you have seen them, too. After all, more have seen UFOs than care to admit ‘ never mind file a report. If the database held by the National UFO Reporting Center in Washington State (est. 1974) is any measure, the first official sightings in Illinois began in the mid-1920s, when a farm boy near Moline spotted an otherworldly ‘disc.’ The Illinois chapter of the Mutual UFO Network (est. 1969 on the western border with Missouri) knows of stories of ‘airships’ in the Midwest dating to 1896. But the majority of sightings are more recent.

Many things are taking place:

Summer’s book is ‘Falling,’ about a pilot who must decide if his passengers live. It was written by a flight attendant.

T.J. Newman spent four years in Illinois going about her business in the most benign way imaginable ‘ studying musical theater, surrounded by Central Illinois farmland. And now, thanks to T.J. Newman, and the pandemic, and general anxiety, but mostly T.J. Newman: no thank you, I don’t feel like flying. Pop culture offers no shortage of reasons to avoid commercial airlines. Snakes on a plane. Bombs on plane. Leslie Nielsen on a plane. Planes vanish. Planes crash into mountains and the survivors eat one another.

If that sounds like a thriller waiting to happen, well: Universal already bought the rights and Newman’s book agent is Shane Salerno, himself a successful screenwriter (‘Armageddon,’ the 2000 remake of ‘Shaft’) who landed Newman a two book, seven-figure deal. Even the blurbs sound more cinematic than literary: ‘This is ‘Jaws’ at 35,000 feet’ (Don Winslow), ‘Like the films ‘Die Hard’ and ‘Speed’ on steroids’ (Library Journal).

Amazon endorsed legal weed. Will it now fight to make it happen?

When it announced its support for lawmakers’ efforts to decriminalize weed last month, Amazon didn’t just become the biggest company in America to back marijuana legalization, it captivated the cannabis industry in the process.

Now, as bills pushing legalization remain stuck in Congress, activists fighting for liberalized cannabis laws are hoping the e-commerce giant will take the next step and use its considerable D.C. muscle to help get them passed.

Lobbyists for legalization are pinning their hopes on Amazon using its experienced lobbying team and deep pockets to support their efforts, believing it could help them launch ad campaigns and persuade lawmakers opposed to legalization ‘ especially those who represent states where cannabis is legal ‘ to change their minds. Cannabis lobbyists and advocates who have spoken with Amazon made it clear that the company is already engaging in cannabis discussions in Washington, D.C. Whether Amazon actively lobbies or invests monetarily in legislation is the question on everyone’s minds.
