Rev. Smith’s scheduled trip to visit the second-tallest buildings in the United States, which he’d been eagerly looking forward to since he bought the plane tickets in mid-July, was officially canceled today. “In light of recent events,” said Smith to confused onlookers, “I have made the decision to call off my planned trip to New York City’s World Trade Center towers.” Smith went on to explain that he was “distraught” by the major airlines’ decision to stop serving in-flight meals, but admitted he would not rule out rescheduling the trip for the near future, traveling instead on a train with a dining car.
