Airline Meal of the Day

On the flight back to Washington, after the snow had cleared, the rendition team celebrated by ordering 17 shrimp cocktails and three bottles of fine Spanish wine, according to catering invoices obtained by the prosecutors. —Bob Drogin and John Goetz writing in "Pilots traced to CIA renditions"

For the three-pilot team that works out to be 5-2/3 shrimp cocktails per person, which is about right for a long flight. All three were using an alias, but if you're a Star Wars fan, you gotta love "Kirk James Bird."
