A recent column reported that on a night flight from Minneapolis to Pittsburgh,
my nephew said the pilot banked over North Dakota
to point out the bright lights - a telltale sign of the oil and gas shale boom in that state.
An alert reader pointed out a flight from Minneapolis to Pittsburgh doesn't go over North Dakota. My mistake. My nephew was flying from Seattle to Minneapolis.
