I've been using 3rd party apps to post to G+, so today is the first day I checked out the "new" layout. Meh.

As many of you know, I have written a few novels, but I also write an opinion blog on subjects related to railroads and trains.  Today, the internet is abuzz with the news that Amtrak, the American version of passenger railroading for the 21st century (that's sarcasm), is allowing pets on certain trains and routes.  I have written on this subject at my blog, but I need to just say this.  All you pet lovers out there who instantly jump down the throats of anyone who suggests this is a bad idea, should consider the chronic asthmatic, many of whom, myself included, can suffer serious illness or death from our pet allergies.  If you do not think your beloved pet can kill someone in the close, limited air of a railway coach, you are mistaken.  If you believe you have the right to take your pet into any public space because you are doing no harm, you are mistaken.  Pet dander is not "hair" or "odor."  It is invisible material from your pet's skin that can kill an asthmatic.  Please, people!  Let common sense not be in such short supply!

Diddling Around With Albuquerque
We (not the editorial we but we the people) had a municipal election yesterday.  A whopping 8% turnout.  Not sure if that's 8% of registered voters or just of those people of voting age living in the City of Albuquerque--aka Burque or just ABQ.  Not importa...

For those of you checking out the spam trap to see where your post went, it was probably flagged as spam and sent to a purgatory where one of us mods must look at it to either approve it or dump it.  Purgatory gets pretty full, and none of us has the time to dump/approve every day, so most of this gets summarily dumped.  Members!  It's up to you to figure out what you're doing that's making your posts go to Purgatory.

(Updated Sept. 27, 2015) For those of you checking out the spam trap to see where your post went, it was probably flagged as spam and sent to a purgatory where one of us mods must look at it to either approve it or dump it.  Purgatory gets pretty full, and none of us has the time to dump/approve every day, so most of this gets summarily dumped. (Right now, there are posts in there going back beyond August 1, 2015, that will never get looked at unless one of the mods has a really, really bad bout of insomnia!) MEMBERS!  It's up to you to figure out what you're doing that's making your posts go to Purgatory.
