As the plane on which Hedda and I were flying approached National Airport Wednesday night, I was looking out the window of the airplane, and I noticed this high-intensity green light on the ground. It flashed in my eyes a couple of times, and then we had passed it by. I had thought it was some sort of commercial thing, a la spotlights, or perhaps a nightclub promotion. In any case, it seems there is a rash of lasers-on-planes incidents around the country. Weird.
