Gen Milley- I hope that none of the spineless cretins who attacked the General during his Congressional testimony never show up at my house. “Thank you for your service” is supposed to apply to people with BRAINS. We are damn lucky to have Milley and his like.
THE EMPIRE BUILDER- I was sad to hear of the disruption of the Empire Builder right during the height of the Fall colors. I only rode it once but it’s an experience everyone should have , especially if you have kids. You can pick it up at either Portland or Seattle for the two day mountainous ride to Chicago. If you can’t figure out a way to have fun in Chicago, I can’t help you.
I’m not an admirer of Sen Joe Manchin but he does have a nifty answer to the housing prices in DC, –he lives on a boat (!) at least part time. Further investigation is warranted.
We don’t know how lucky we are to be trapped behind the Humboldt bubble. My brother in Jacksonville just lost TWO friends to COVID, both healthy guys in their ‘fifties. I thank God everyday we live here.
