I’ve had enough heat for the time being.  Time to go.

At the airport TSA gave my bag their special attention (as I looked on) with all manner of care for restoring some decent order… not.   Thanks for that.

My View For Awhile: ORDEAL WITH @DELTA

Now for a couple of flights, one shortish and one longish.

A couple days back, at the Fishwrap (aka National Sodomitic Reporter), the Wile E. Coyote of the catholic Left, Michael Sean Winters, attacked converts.
