Survived my trip to the dentist. All is well - my gums are healing, and my teeth are strong with no new cavities.
Okay, I can understand some of the anger here. American Airlines flew a plane from Chicago to London with just five passengers on it. The environmental group Friends Of The Earth is screaming bloody murder about CO2 use and waste of jet fuel...which does make sense.
But AA tried to make other accomodations for not only these five, but for the hundreds of folk that would be flying BACK to the USA from London. Unfortunately, there was no way to do this - a plane HAD to be sent to London to take those other passengers. What were they supposed to do - walk across the Atlantic?
I'm sure airlines fly non-filled planes to locations all the time. After all, it's not like they can unbolt the wings and take them on the freeway.
Speaking of flying...
Hey, Brin (and all other travelers who take their laptops with them) - don't fly to Denver, if you can avoid it.
Brace yourself. This story doesn't say whether it was in the name of Islam or not...but it's still really sick:
The 25-year-old man beheaded the baby following a dispute with his sister and brother-in-law in front of stunned shoppers at the Al-Marhaba supermarket Tuesday morning, police say.
"The murderer was in a dispute with the boy's mother and her husband," a police officer who would not release his name told Arab News. "He chopped off the boy's head in front of the mother to get back at her."
The baby's mother and a nearby shopper fainted while other witnesses stood in shock over the grisly murder. The mother is hospitalized.
There really is no truly justifiable reason for beheading a baby boy just to "get back at" his mother. I wonder if some imam will declare that this scumbag DID have a right to do so.
Well, I have many things to do today. I have to go to a business and try to get a duplicate of a receipt - for tomorrow is Tax Guy Day.
Kiss a baby.
Be seeing you.
