Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space. — Douglas Adams

Sacramento’s KCRA is reporting that 15 people suffered minor injuries today when a JetBlue flight from Long Beach to Sacramento made a “hard landing.”
At least one of the plane’s tires blew and caught fire on landing, possibly due to brake trouble. Earlier reports which suggested there was a fire on board the plane appear to have been a misunderstanding.
SFist reports that “store closing” discount signs have appeared in the aisles of the Borders bookstore on Third and King Streets, depriving Giants fans of a rendezvous spot and after-game shopping experience. The store, whose cafe was usually lively, has been open pretty much ever since the ballpark opened ten years ago, is another victim of the changing book retail industry. A bowling alley may go in its place, SFist reports. LiveSOMA has more details, and the closing date, Oct. 16.
3:59 p.m.: According to ABC News, an FBI spokesman has labelled the threat “non-credible,” meaning that everybody can go back through security and try again. Safe travels, everyone!
A phone call to the Alameda County sheriff’s office alleging either a bomb or a terror suspect was on board American Airlines Flight 24 from San Francisco International Airport to New York’s JFK forced officials to prevent the flight’s takeoff this morning. The plane, scheduled for takeoff at 7:30 a.m., was diverted to a taxiway, emptied of passengers, and searched while passengers were interviewed.
Here’s a Twitter feed from one of the passengers, Campbell McKellar, indicating that passengers sat on the plane for about four hours before it began to be un-boarded. Passenger Jay Sears also narrated the events on Twitter.
According to the KPIX website, arrivals and departures at SFO continued unaffected. According to the same source, 163 passengers and 11 crew members were on the plane.

Soon after Dave Rada and I became friends on facebook I learned that he had a passion for film and I asked him to tell me about his latest project:
Horror of Our Love: A Short Film
I (Dave) produced/directed/wrote and was the monster in the short film. The short film is inspired by the song Horror of Our Love by the band LUDO, they are a great bunch of guys and it’s such an amazing song. Filled with romance, horror, and comedy. I think the song goes hand in hand with the film. It’s also cool to help such a great band reach their audience in a really fun way, and we also really appreciate all their support for the film as well…
We filmed it in January, in San Jose using an all San Jose Crew…Loved filming there because the S.J. locales fit the romantic feeling of the song so well, rather than gritty L.A.!! We got to shoot at John D. Morgan Park at night, something I have always wanted to do, and we only freaked out a few of the neighbors, ha! It’s a good thing we let San Jose PD and Campbell PD know we were filming and had friend and local Detective Todd Trayer on set!! He said there were a few nervous phone calls, but nothing too bad..Whew! .
Phil Grasso was my excellent Director of Photography, Kate Melia played “Girl” and I have known her since high school. She was phenomenal to truly understand the film’s balance of romance, horror, and comedy. It was great to work with my crew, they seemed a bit hungrier and fought along side me hard, NOT against me to make the best film we could.
Since completing the short we have been accepted to film festivals all over the country.
Most Recently the Dances With Films Festival going on in L.A, in June. This is a really great film festival and we are honored to attend….
Note: ‘Horror of Our Love’ – Won the Dances With Films Audience Choice Award in L.A. !!!
