"Will Fly For Food" Pilots do the :30 Pitch

They had enough spunk to stand on one of Seattle's busiest street corners with signs reading "Will Fly For Food." Meet Chris Campbell and Steffen Schmidt, laid off pilots who are today's 30 Second Pitch

    Congrats to CNN and the "Will Fly For Food" Pilots for once again bringing to America the decline of the corporate flight world. Maybe people will finally see that the perception of corporate aviation run by a bunch of "fat cats" and flown by "rich" pilots is completely false.

    As a fellow "30 Second Pitch" member and pilot, I hope for us all this leads to better times.

    Good luck guys and nice job!!!

    I am happy that the choice made is a woman, but, I am extremely unhappy with the way the choice is being reported. Who cares what nationality the choice is? I am so sick of everything having a color, ever since obama, who forgets he is half white, got into office. Just like his choice for head of NASA, first African American, who cares?
    As long as these people are qualified, who cares where they came from. Just make sure they are U.S. citizens, and forget everything else.
    This country needs to grow up, and it needs to start in Washington.

    Not to be negative, but "I am an ordinary person given extraordinary opportunities" does not make me want to root for her nomination.
    I think President Obama is trying to kill two birds with one Supreme Court nomination and he could have done much better selecting a Hispanic or a woman separately.

    As an African-American, I cried with joy for Judge Sotomayor and
    hope that the next appointee is a qualified Asian-american.
