Oh, Jetman (or “Fusionman,” which you prefer to be called, but which just seems like a bit much and a kind of off-the-point): We’re so glad the FAA saw the wisdom in allowing you to risk death for our amusement above one of our nation’s most spectacular national treasures. Your contraption is so silly and marvelous and garishly sponsored, and that looks like so much fun, that we will forgive you the god-awful music you lay underneath your video.
