When I first heard that an Amazon employee had crashed an unmanned aerial vehicle in the Space Needle, I thought to myself “Well, Bezos has finally done it now.” Year after year of losing money? That’s a mark of pride for Seattle-based businesses. Annoying indie authors by not giving them much money for Kindle Unlimited? Well, where else are their most loyal partisans going to go now? But but jove, people are a bit twitchy about drones getting up to mischief these days. And he could hardly have picked a more beloved civic monument to ram. This isn’t the Saint Louis arch or something.
But now it sounds like he simply buzzed the observation deck, maybe without running into anything. So that’s all right, then.
