Southwest Baby

Southwest, southwest … “still concerned something else will come up…because it’s Southwest.”


In case you haven’t heard, Southwest Airlines was overwhelmed by last week’s winter storm because of their outdated technology and preference to make shareholders more comfortable than employees and customers and canceled over 13,000 flights.

I had two friends scheduled to fly Southwest this week. Rob, flying from California, actually arrived but was three hours late. Chris, flying from Milwaukee, gave up and rented a car and drove from Wisconsin to Washington National Airport where his car was parked on Tuesday. I’m glad they both arrived in Virginia…eventually…because we went out for Korean BBQ last night (I had the Korean fried chicken which made us ask, “What makes Korean fried chicken Korean other than it being made by a Korean?”.

““Memorize places,” his uncle had told him.” … and much more!!

Live & Learn

“Memorize places,” his uncle had told him. “Settle your eyes on a place and learn it. See it under the snow, and when first grass is growing, and as the rain falls on it.

Nosy Republicans

More on the added ‘evidence’ and lies of GEORGE SANTOS!!


This should not come as a surprise to anyone but a brand new lie has been discovered from Republican congressman-elect, George Santos.

You remember this Republican idiot. He won a Long Island congressional district that includes parts of Queens, and then we learned last week that basically everything he claimed about his past is a lie.

He lied about his education, claiming he has a degree (he does not) and that he went to two New York City universities that he never attended. He lied about being Jewish, now saying he didn’t say “Jewish,” but “Jew-ish.” He lied about his ancestry. He lied about where he worked and a charity he invented. He lied about having employees who were at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando during a mass shooting. He lied about being a landlord when the fact is he was an evicted tenant. He lied about his income.
