image for Drones Don't Get Invited to City's New Year's Eve Bash
Paper planes are welcome, but a drone is a no-no.

Outrage was in evidence among drones (y'know, those flying thingies that come in all sizes and shapes) when they learned they were not invited to the massive party thrown by the city of White Plains, north of New York City. More specifically, the drones were told they were forbidden to be in certain areas of the city between the hours of 2 p.m. on New Year's Eve to 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2018.

"Yep, we're grounded for the most fun hours, through no fault of our own," grumbled one of the drones. He continued, "It's so unfair. And just wait until a crime is committed or a pet or human goes missing. Then the officials will be shouting, 'Send in the drones We need them for aerial surveillance.'"

"No way," answered an especially defiant drone, suggesting that that will be the perfect time for a job action. He said, "They didn't invite US to their party. Why should we help THEM find their sniveling kids or grandmas? Fair is fair."

So there!
