>Tower: "Cessna One Two Three, transition approved. Report clear.">>Half minute pause, and then: "Tower, this is Cessna One Two Three; where is Clear?">>Doc BryantI can NEVER hear the word "clear" without the following bounding into my mind.From the movie, "A Few Good Men".Of course, you remember our protagonists,Col. Jessup: tough-speaking, crusty 'ol Marine Colonel, Jack Nickelson.Kaffee: young Navy lawyer, fresh out of law school, Tom Cruise.The Scene: courtroom "drama", after much verbal sparring between the Old Man and the Kid.Col. Jessup: We follow orders son. We follow orders, or people die. It's that simple. Are we clear? (voice rising) Kaffee: Yes, Sir. Col. Jessup: Are we CLEAR? (shouting) Kaffee: Crystal.That is before Kaffee traps him in a big contradiction, and rips him a new a--hole. :-hang
