"I go to prepare a place for you..."

Click to enlarge (you need to, in order to appreciate the full sweep of the place). 

I don't know if I've posted this picture before, but it's a trail in the White Tank mountains about 20 miles west of Phoenix, Arizona. When I was in graduate school, I used to hike there all the time, and occasionally I'd take my books out there to study. 

The desert doesn't suit everyone, but it's my favorite locale. I have this fantasy that, as you lay dying, if you can fix in your mind the picture of a place that you love, then it will become your own little slice of heaven. This is mine.

Of course, if I'm wrong about my destination, I suppose I'll wind up in, I dunno, Camden, New Jersey.

Oh, so no summary execution. Thanks, Your Munificence.

"Pelosi Statement on Trump Indictment Turns Justice on Its Head: Says He Has the 'Right to a Trial to Prove Innocence'".

Friend and commenter Veeshir in the comments: "He is surely guilty of Obstruction of Betters with aggravated Orange Man Bad."

So, we went from "They're going to indict Trump on Tuesday!" (Tuesday a week ago)... this: "Grand jury in Trump Manhattan district attorney investigation going on monthlong break".

No indictment after all this time? Could it be...?

Update  Well, this post quickly became obsolete: " New York Grand Jury Indicts Donald Trump".

They're really looking - hoping - for a Fort Sumter moment.

Back in the day

I'm familiar with electric can openers - Ma Paco had one she bought back in the 60s and let us have - mobile dish washers, and percolators, but I had never heard of the rest of these things.  Of course, we weren't exactly what you'd call "cutting edge" people.
