From Instapundit, presented with only a little comment.
The nice comment at the top is by Charles Glasser, one of Glenn Reynolds' sub-pundits, from March 14th. Hey man, nice shot!
Mr. Reynolds is a pretty good Libertarian, and I guess he picks those with similar views to be his sub-pundits (he's got quite a few of them now, one or two handfuls). I like his featuring deals like this.
This tweet and picture are from Portsmouth, Ohio, in southern Ohio right on the Ohio River 30 miles or so downstream from Ashland, Kentucky. It looks like that beer bottle got pretty close. I'm no lawyer (Professor Reynolds is), so I don't know what the laws are about flying objects and property rights. I think we should have the option to buy airspace along with our land property (and often underground rights). How high would it go normally, if we are not under the traffic pattern of an airport? 500 - 1000 ft. above ground level would be reasonable.
We can't do much about those satellites that supposedly can read license plates from orbit. OTOH, I don't think they can't just focus on on one given area on demand, as you see on the Jason Bourne movies*. Will drone battles be a part of the next Civil War?
