The Ferguson “revolution” may be televised courtesy of straight to YouTube cell phone clips, but any chopper-based TV crews will have to find a different vantage point, as will any and all low flying aircraft (with the exception of US government drones of course), because moments ago, the FAA announced that starting 1315 UTC through 2000 UTC on August 12, “No pilots may operate an aircraft in the areas covered by this NOTAM (except as described). ONLY RELIEF AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS UNDER DIRECTION OF ST.” The Reason? “TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES.” Because TV crews recording every incident put “law enforcement” in jeopardy?
The full statement:
FDC 4/2599 ZKC MO..AIRSPACE FERGUSON, MO..TEMPORARY FLIGHT RESTRICTIONS WITHIN AN AREA DEFINED AS 3 NM RADIUS OF 384428N0901812W (ST LOUIS VORTAC STL129011.0) SFC-3000FT TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES. PURSUANT TO 14 CFR SECTION 91.137(A)(2) TEMPORARY FLIGHT RESTRICTIONS ARE IN EFFECT. ONLY RELIEF AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS UNDER DIRECTION OF ST. LOUIS COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT ARE AUTHORIZED IN THE AIRSPACE. AIRCRAFT LANDING AND DEPARTING ST. LOUIS LAMBERT AIRPORT ARE EXEMPT FROM THIS TFR. ST. LOUIS COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT, TELEPHONE 3148892360 , IS IN CHARGE OF THE OPERATION. KANSAS CITY /ZKC/ ARTCC, TELEPHONE 9132548500, IS THE FAA COORDINATION FACILITY. 1408121315-1408182000
To summarize, in addition to the heavily militarized police presence, and the barring of journalists and protesters, the government just prohibited news helicopters. Which, of course, is simply government code that tonight Ferguson may get “turbulent.”

This really hit me hard jesus christ.
This Friday’s mermaid!
See all the weekly mermaids so far here.
There are lots of things that have changed, but for me one of the more telling differences in the New 52 is that in the old universe, Kon was the name Clark gave Superboy to signify that he was part of his family, that he had a place and a history and connections. In the new universe, it’s a prejudiced slur that literally means “abomination,” a word to curse at someone with.
Holy fucking shit this makes me want to puke on the pavement.
WOW talk about holding up a mirror and showing how fucking crazy different they’ve treated these characters now from then.
I guess the importance of family and belonging is not as sellable as gritty depressing decay anymore . Wow, fuck me, this is so bad. Young Justice animated naming was even better than this, at least he still got his name from someone who loved him!
Wow yuck wow wow wow wow
This isn’t even someone I love anymore I don’t even know who this character IS anymore.
