"Why are there one or more helicopters circling overhead?", Evan Kirchhoff wondered a few days back. I don't have an answer, but I do know what helicopters are doing near my house in Sky Londa: Picking up whatever is left of some poor motorcyclist who has taken a corner too fast. Two hundred yards up the road from me is the intersection of routes 84 and 35. On one corner is a long building that houses a general store and gas station, a real estate office, and a shuttered restaurant that now hosts receptions, corporate events, and other activities. (Like Dean meetups. Remember them?) On one side of this building is a lane leading to a gate, and behind the gate is a flat field. This is where red medical helicopters land to pick up crash victims several times each summer.
