Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Did you find this or take it?

In some ways I wish I'd been able to take it -- in many ways I'm glad I've never seen it. It came my way from some persons I know back east, so I believe it is accurate and not "PhotoShopped."

In any event, it certainly makes for an exciting photo. . .Boeing 737, BTW.

bigquitehat is getting around! If you haven't been to his blog you should. He's very good.

I dropped in here because of a comment you made somewhere (on one of my posts I think)that you drive 70 some odd miles to work every day and you live in the Sierra Nevadas. And it's getting ready to snow.

Hope you are careful with that. I used to live in Virginia City back in the 50's. My parents worked in Reno. One day while driving down the mountain to work in a snowstorm with cars following the tail lights of the car in front of them, about five cars just drove over the side of a very long and deadly drop. No one survived. My parents fortunately stopped before they went over.

Gayle: I made Big White Hat one of my very first links on my blogroll -- his site and, in particular, his WRITINGS are GREAT!

Regarding driving in the snow: I have a Subaru Outback Sport AWD and it does wonderfully in the snow and rain. Every winter, though, I watch all the stupid people pass me on I-80 and, invariably, I watch their SUVs and pickups make 360-degree spins into other vehicles.

I laugh mightily as I pass these folks in their Escalades, thinking they were invincible.

Every summer, on I-80, I know there will be two or three truck/trailer fires from truckers overusing their brakes; I know there will be an RV burned to the hubs from gas leaks.

Every winter I know at least one truck will punch through the guardrail into the surrounding pines, and 3 or more SUVs and pickups will flip attempting to negotiate corners too fast.

As John Wayne is credited for saying: "Life is tough. It's tougher if you're stupid."

TexasFred: I see this frequently so I have to suck it up, display my ignorance, and ask: what is LMAO?

BloZep, LMAO is laughing my ass off.

Y'all are building me up to be more than I am. I'm just a kid from Odessa who got tired of watching the papers over edit my columns.

AHA! I KNEW it! Your writing was so good you had a newspaper column! Nice try, Hat -- being humble is admirable but I calls 'em as I sees 'em.

Thanks for the acronym update too!

Looks like some macaroon didn't click the Dzus fittings on the cowling.
Or a bird strike? Yup. I wouldn't want to see that sight out of the canopy or window. The saving grace is there are no flames.

I love Wayne quotes as well.
