Woman Flies Plane Over S&P

Lucy Nobbe, a financial broker and single mom in Kirkwood, Missouri, was so angry about the downgrade of the nation's credit rating by Standard & Poor's that she hired a plane to fly above S&P's headquarters in Manhattan with a banner reading, “Thanks for the downgrade—you should all be fired.” Originally, Nobbe had hoped to direct her message to lawmakers in D.C. but settled on S&P after realizing that there was a no-fly zone over the capital. Nobbe says the flight cost her $900.
