    I'm aware of at least two plane crashes that were due to the pilots reacting to an engine failure by shutting down the one and only functioning engine by mistake.

    Plenty of people in my profession have removed the wrong kidney/limb/etc not out of malice but simple error.

    Good article.

    News stories today say Wright’s arrest warrant was for a misdemeanor but fail to list the misdemeanor as “armed robbery and battery”. It’s kind of infuriating if the above links to his alleged crime are correct. How is that not a felony?

    As you recall from the pre campaign training “we protect the position, not the person. Someone is attacking the democratic process, it’s bigger than the individual”.

    It was actually a good speech. I Worked Trump/Clinton/Sanders at different times during the campaign. Regardless of personal opinions, I was not going to the the guy in the 9th grade history books who let a turd sneak past my post and get off a shot.

    And the number of mopes who actually got into places they should not have, and a few who got really close... so much never makes the papers. Oooof. Most were just stupid, some were actually lost, some were baiting you to come go “hands on” while their friends videoed, and rare few were genuinely mental cases that may have ill intent.

    Covid screwed me out of the detail this past election. I look forward to one more election before I am mandatory to retire.

    He never quite lived up to his promise to carry on in MLK's footsteps. Not a lot of brain power there.
    In the P-F basket of deplorables.

    I was required to attend a Rainbow Coalition service as part of a college class in downtown Chicago late 80s. I am pretty sure my attendance had the opposite effect of what the professor intended. Didn’t like the guy before, -really- didn’t care for him or his Coalition after.

    The only good thing to come from him was plenty of spoof-worthy quotes and actions that SNL was able to make use of (back when SNL was funny).

    And when he read "Green Eggs and Ham" on SNL in his best preacher voice. For a second, I thought the guy might have a sense of humor.

    I forgot about that! That was simply amazing. I actually thought it was an impersonator well into the sketch.

    Yeah, Hymietown endeared him to millions.

    Fuck him.
    ...and just like that, I woke up one morning and the America I knew and loved was gone.
