I had a good friend that did a lot of flights into Mexico. That plane with the broken gear might be one of his, though he usually did most of his ditching on this side of the border. I don't think he surfed though. We got into a tiff over his girlfriend. She later sold him out to the DEA, so I guess he won that one--or maybe I did. I connected with him on Facebook a few years ago. He's a preacher in Oklahoma now. I'd rather just be shot.

Interesting. I used to live in a house in Forest Heights in Portland, which is a large McMansion development owned by Naru ltd. The Wikipedia listing for Naru documents the sad tale of the disappearing island and accompanying environmental disaster, and the last few lines mention Forest Heights, as one of the few beneficial investments the islanders made. In other words, I lived in the neighborhood that bird poop made.
MJB, I agree with the list, and I think the Gorsuch nomination is a good one. But that's pretty scant stuff for the first hundred days. In Trumps defense, I don't think he expected to win, and his team didn't do the usual prep work to take power--they started from a clean sheet. On the other hand, WTF--didn't expect to win? Would anyone accept that as an excuse from anyone else? He needs to stay the fuck off twitter and act like a president, or he's going to dig a hole that the republicans will never crawl out of. Probably already has.
And anyone out there with liberal leanings shouldn't celebrate--the left is going to be the next in the barrel. Somehow the swings need to damp out. Obama did a lot of damage and little good. Trump is amplifying that. What's next? Probably not good.
