It was ever thus. Back in the 1980s when I went with my parents to the marina every summer weekend, they'd watch the news to get a traffic report, and then we'd either head up 394 to I-80, or else we'd go through Crown Point to I-65 and take that to I-80, and miss all the traffic jams.

Seven simple principles.
1. Reality is real. Reality is not optional.Very simple. Very true.
2. Speech which does not conform to reality is falsehood; thought, madness.
3. Beauty is real, and ennobles the soul; ugliness is foul, and fit for satire only. Beauty is not in the eye of the beholder.
4.Human life from conception until natural death is sacred; animal life is livestock; abortion and euthanasia are satanic.
5. Virginity and monogamy are sacred; polygamy is adultery, and adultery is a crime; sodomy is a crime against nature, or a mental disease, or both.
6. The Rights of Man are sacred, including the rights to life, liberty, property.
7. All sacred things come from God.

Hillary Clinton's computer didn't have passwords. So any swinging dick could waltz into her office and access top secret stuff.
It didn't have passwords because they were too complicated for her.
Shocking Deposition: Hillary Clueless On Using Computer EmailsShe can't use a computer to send and view e-mails? How out of touch! Clearly she's not qualified for the Presidency!
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton never used a password to protect her computer emails, and she was clueless about how regular emails work on a conventional computer, according to a deposition of a foreign service officer at the State Department.
She also continued to push for the use of her personal Blackberry phone in the Secretary’s highly-secured government suite even though National Security Agency (NSA) regulations barred its use in that office.
The revelations came as part of a May 18 deposition released Thursday by Judicial Watch, the nonprofit government watchdog group, of Lewis A. Lukens, a veteran 27-year foreign service officer at the State Department who served as the deputy executive secretary and executive director of the Office of the Secretariat from 2008 to 2011.
From the start of her term in January 2009, State Department officials grappled with Clinton’s ignorance of the use of basic computers. In a January 24, 2009 email from Lukens to the department’s Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy, the foreign service officer said Clinton didn’t know how to use a computer for emails.
Citing a conversation Lukens had with Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, he wrote, “She says problem (sic) is HRC does not know how to use a computer to do emails — only Blackberry.” HRC refers to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Meanwhile, if you're not a Clinton, security breaches like this land you in jail for a long time.

Another high-energy launch, another successful recovery on a barge. That's three in a row. And supposedly SpaceX is going to launch one of the recovered boosters later this summer.

Well, after making and eating dinner, and doing this post, now suddenly it's 1 AM and I have to get up at 7 in order to be at work by 9. *sigh*
