It was over Monterey Bay, which is about a mile from my present location.

@Reno Dakota i just assumed that andy never reads the comments since he obviously doesn't read the newsletter.
  Wed. 2/12/14 6:55pm Hello there:

I don't know if this has been brought up before, but twitter accounts become active about 6 months after they're last used. Perhaps in 6 months Don McLean's twitter name will become available.
Avatar    Wed. 2/12/14 6:56pm Lizardner Dave:

I don't believe that Andy believes this.
Avatar    Wed. 2/12/14 6:56pm Lizardner Dave:

My suspicion is this is a reverse-prank on the audience thought up by Andy.
Avatar    Wed. 2/12/14 6:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Reno: It seems that not even Ken reads the comments (at least during 7SD!) So highly unlikely.

@Lizardner Dave, I hope you're wrong. Andy is a famously bad actor.... unless THAT was an act.
  Wed. 2/12/14 6:58pm Robert:

Well, as long as we don't think Andy reads these, I might as well reveal that starting at 6:30 when Andy made a comment about the look of the balloon photo, I've believed that Andy is just playing along. What I'm not sure is whether Ken realized it.
Avatar    Wed. 2/12/14 6:58pm Matt from Springfield:

KEN playing "American Pie" for this?? Wow Dave, you may be right: Andy reverse-prank on the audience, to make Ken play "American Pie"!
