Something for the Bernie or Bust folks to read
My favorite parts for the tldr crowd.

Maybe we have more in common than you have been led to believe. So, even though I've read that Millennials both abhor and ignore the past, please indulge your old Uncle Randy, and let me tell you a story about a poet-politician named Eugene McCarthy. ,,,
My generation betrayed you. We didn't get our preferred candidate, so instead of going to the polls and voting for second best, we stayed home. The result was that Humphrey lost by one percentage point, and we gave you Richard Nixon, a loathsome and venal slug of a man who extended the war by four pointless years. His psychiatrist said that Nixon ordered bombing raids just to impress his friends. He was severely neurotic, viciously anti-Semitic, and racially insensitive, so, of course, he was re-elected. ,,,
We were so upset about not getting our anti-war candidate, we overlooked the fact that Humphrey had been a champion of civil rights since 1948 and was the main author of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In the end, the nefarious Nixon won the election with 43.4 percent to Humphrey's 42.7 percent. We gave you a mentally unstable president, subject to bouts of mood swings, and a petulant, thin-skinned sociopath bent on revenge against his critics. If all this sounds familiar, it should.
Hello Millennials. Are you sick to death of that moniker yet? Are you weary of being lumped into a group of millions of people with...

Heard on +Thom Hartmann , today (paraphrased):

My wife and I came out of the bookstore, and saw a cop writing a ticket. I walked up and said, "Hey, can't a senior citizen get a break, here?" He ignored me and started to tear off the ticket. "Jerk!", my wife said. The cop then started writing another ticket, muttering "tires are unsafe", and I called him an idiot. He kept writing, and went on to a third an fourth ticket as we heaped abuse on him. With the last ticket tucked under the windshield wiper, he walked away with a sneer.

About that time, the bus pulled up, and we hopped on with our bags to go home, leaving the car with the tickets and "Trump!" bumper stickers behind us, waiting for its owner.

We did a major remodel with Knight in 2003, that included a 16x20 addition and a totally redone. kitchen in granite and maple. We had our own design person for that project, but Knight and his subs did a superb job of execution and we enjoy every bit of it to this day. A few months ago, we needed to replace a steam shower enclosure, and went with Knight again, resulting in a gorgeous tile steam shower with glass doors. While this project was in progress, we found that the base of our upstairs shower stall was leaking and needed full replacement, and that was added to the project, with timing such that we always had one shower to use. You want contractors/craftsmen who are proud of their work and happy to show you their progress, and that is what we had with both projects.

Beware, this is on the JEB military base. The lighthouse, First Landing Memorial, and tribute to French Adm. DeGrasse are worth visiting. The beach, there, is not available to visitors.

Everything went fine at DCA National Airport. The associate took us through using the kiosk, which begs the question of having kiosks. Never a hassle with the spouse driving, no hard-sell on insurance or upgrade. That's what I like. Check-in was super smooth.
