Night moves

I call this one “Bored Man at Sunport with iPhone Camera.”

You don’t even have to be on the plane for air travel to suck.

Herself was wheels down at the Sunport around 10 in the peeyem last night, and her luggage took a while to show up, as it will, which meant we were motoring home around the time I usually devote to inspecting the inside of my eyelids while beered-up Burqueños cap each other over right-of-way issues.

I saw one helmetless eejit on a crotch rocket thread various needles at about 20 mph over the posted limit, using all the eastbound lanes on I-40, without signaling, right in front of two cops working a traffic stop. I’m surprised the backup officer didn’t shoot him. Hell, I wanted to shoot him myself.

Anyway, we weren’t lights-out until midnight, morning comes early with a pair of cats in the vicinity, and a darkly comic opera is anticipated at the Senate Judiciary Committee, so if I were you I’d be prepared for all manner of outré behavior in this space today.

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!

• Late addendum: Jaysis, it’s worse than I had feared. To call this hearing a shitshow is to libel shitshows. Primate houses have a keener sense of the distinction between order and ordure. They’re quieter, too.

      That’s a good’un, innit? Language can be lovely. I don’t know where I picked that up. I don’t think it was part of conversational French back in kindergarten.

        It (language) is a beautiful thing. You must be paying attention to something. I appreciate what you do as I can’t come up with it, myself. Have a good one.

    Listened to Ford’s statement. Tough to listen to that. Kavanaugh sounds like he was a flaming asshole. The icing on the cake is his protestations of having been a choir boy. Yeah, sure. I knew more than a few of that drunken, aggressive frat boy type at Rochester and they did not impress me. Even when some of them went on to become “respectable citizens” in later life.

    My girlfriend at the time was at one point stalked by an asshole. The guy was pounding on her dorm room door one night. I had four close friends at the time who were all well over six feet tall and 200 lbs. Since the University seemed unconcerned, my buddies pulled him aside for a quiet discussion regarding how many ribs and spinal columnals he wished to have broken if he kept it up.

    never the less, she persisted.

    I started to read the NYT piece, but had to stop at the “religious right” paragraph. This one will go down like the rest. Dumpster has already set up to dump “Nasty Bart.” The committee will do likewise. They will find another to put in his place and ram them through lickety split. S2D2. Same shit, different day.

    Didn’t think about this shit at all while sucking tandem wheel this morning. Going to ride the 44 mile route on the Sky Island Tour charity ride Saturday morning. I will be sporting the team jersey of course. OGWGFIWRT! Come on down, it should be nice.

    I watched their opening statements. Then I watched a couple of question and answers sessions. Boy, these folks sure know how to start a revolution. Maybe that is what they want.
