Titans Receiver: Would Quit Over Anthem Rule, Deletes Tweet
One NFL player says he will "be done playing football " if the league requires him to stand during the national anthem. This is the kind of thing you would expect to find in totalitarian nations, but not in a free state.

Finnair, the Finnish flag carrier that has operated the otherwise routine Copenhagen to Helsinki route for 11 years, is renumbering its flights at the end of the month.

However, today will be the last time Flight 666 flies to Hel, as the airline has made a decision to retire the flight number.

Flight 666 will fly 15 more times overall until October 29 when the number will change to AY954 - altogether much less spooky. The airline declined to comment on whether the change had been made with concerned or superstitious passengers in mind.
