The End of an Era



We had some bad storms roll through here last night, so I went over to the website for the local paper to see if they had any reports of storm damage. Looks like our area lucked out for the most part. There's some wind and hail damage, but there doesn't appear to be any loss of life.  Anyway, after reading the article about the storms, I decided to go see if there were any interesting letters in the "Letters to the Editor" section. 

I hadn't done this in a while, so I ended up reading some older letters from August. I learned that one of the usual letter writers has flounced, and will no longer be sharing the insights she has pulled from chain emails, Fox News, Breitbart/WND/Newsmax, and her rear end. Her tirades about how perfect the world was when women and minorities knew their place; and didn't have crazy ideas about thinking they were equal to white, heterosexual, Christian men were legendary. Her breathless rants on various right-wing conspiracy theories, coupled with her extremely conservative religious beliefs always held my interest.

Goodbye, Mrs. X. I really hope you'll decide to spend the time you used to spend on writing letters to the newspaper on something less apocalyptic in tone.  Have you ever considered playing with your grandchildren, reading some light-hearted novels, or perhaps doing some craft projects? Maybe learning how not to be so damned afraid of everything all the time?  I know, I know, you don't have time for such frivolous things when the "End Times" are just around the corner.

PS: If you ever decide to start a blog, please let me know. I know some people who would enjoy reading what you have to say.

      Ok, I am not going to say I haven't read the left leaning conspiracy theories about this shooting, even if I'm trying to hold off until we have more verified information.

      But I don't get where this "Biden sent the shooter" idiocy is coming from because seriously here? He has an actual job, with stuff to do etc. Now if you wanted me to believe Steve Bannon sent the shooter I would be more receptive, mostly because it's the kind of out there theory I can get behind.

      I don’t mind that they want to see people they love, but why the prevarication

      Doesn't fit in with the "we need a safe and stable home across the country " grifting theme. I don't think people would have donated as much if they knew there was a planned holiday in the middle, and I am wondering how many donors are now side-eyeing the hell out of them. Because that wasn't a small omission there, it was strongly implied that both flights were sequential and necessary to get to where they are planning to live.

      I swear if it turns out they've moved two suburbs away in Seattle... I will probably laugh. I doubt this is the case - why fly the cats? - but part of me is expecting to find out they've moved to Salem, Oregon, or Sacramento.

      It is possible for spouses and children of defendants in federal CSA/child porn cases to request (and receive) mental health services through the Federal Defender Victim/Witness programs. But the key detail is that it has to be requested and typically that happens in situations where the spouse is trying to separate/divorce from the offender.

      “The discrimination was awful, and TSA held us up for over an hour and made us late for our first flight.”

      My husband flies with his mobility assistance gear all the time for work, including into and out of Seattle. He says their claim sounds like absolute rubbish. Every interaction he has had with the Seattle airport has been professional, swift,  and courteous. 

      Over the years he has used a  cane, walker, manual wheelchair and power chair. At every turn the Seattle airport has been kind and competent, 

      Well we all know how entitled Artemis is, no surprise they figured they could run late and the TSA line would part for them like the Red Sea in the Ten Commandments because they have mobility devices and cats. The "awful discrimination" was probably other people who told them to wait in line and the TSA staff probably reiterated that using mobility devices does not give them the right to expect special treatment.

      Counseling would come from a different court than the criminal court Josh was in.  It would only be ordered due to a CPS investigation.
