According to The Seattle Times, Burien resident Christopher C. Saunders, 24, who was arrested last Friday by Port of Seattle Police for lasering approaching airplanes near Sea-Tac Airport (a felony), was apparently “playing around” with a green laser light at a party in the 2200 block of South 136th Street on Feb. 22nd.

The Times says that the renter of the house said Saunders first pointed the laser at their horses until he was asked to stop. At least 12 airplanes reported being “lasered” that night, and numerous incidents happened over the following 2-3 weeks.

As the police interviewed the renter, Saunders arrived at the residence and confessed to pointing the beam in multiple directions on the day of the party and that he might have “lasered” a plane.

    Reading this reminds me somewhat of my youthful pre-common-sense days. Not that I ever lasered anything, but I may have committed a few foolish acts along the way. My partners in folly and I kept within the bounds of reason for the most part by following the sage advice we found in the lofty tome: The Cat In The Hat. You remember; all that chaos and mayhem, the path leading inevitably to BIG TROUBLE when mom and dad got back…. Then the cat cleans everything up in a jiffy and delivers the ultimate words of advice: "It's fun to have fun, but you've gotta know how."
    Don't do that again, OK Chris?
