11. nonsense

I prefer to get upset over real issues and this one doesn't pass muster.

The "no fly zone" is only from ground level up to 1000 feet. Anyone with a chopper and a telephoto lens can get some really decent pictures/video.

Plus there's some dispute about how hard it might be to just call up and get permission to get closer (i.e. traffic control vs. an actual ban).

I actually think this is to prevent collisions between lots of news choppers all flying really low and trying to take closeups.

Of course I could be wrong, but it's not a "no fly zone" if you can fly over it at only 1000 feet ... which is not really that high!!
