Ok to ask your pilot if he is feeling depressed?

Now this.
I for one will never again board a flight without taking a look at the pilots with a new and unwelcome subtext to my risk assessment formula.
For example, "how's it goin captain?" does not now seem inappropriate for any passenger to ask and that alone may add twenty minutes to all flights!
What a world we live in!
Each generation faces their own new set of challenges from savage natives to diseases not yet curable.
The 21st Century has now established its niche in historical iconography like the Hippie60s, Roaring 20s, etc...so far, the 2000s have been defined most by 911 and now the horrific confirmation that airline pilots can no longer be trusted with our lives.
What to do?
Stop flying is one answer. But that should also include changing our personal behavior as best we can to stop others from controlling our destinies. As I think this through, it is a one percenter issue. Our world and its economies thrive on the rich getting richer and now a lone wolf has shown us that the power of one still reigns supreme in 2015.

Blue Bloods Friday

Friday night is Blue Bloods night.
This TV show offers us the oportunity to hang out with Tom Selleck and Frank Reagan's family.
Friday night has always been a favorite weekly time for me at every stage of my life, from Friday night at Howard Johnson's for all-you-can-eat-fish-fry to Friday night light high school football games, date nights with girls, women and wives over 50 years.


Holy Toledo!

The years go by in a series of events separated by roadmarks, like loved ones dying.
Seasons come and go and I mean baseball, football etc not winter and summer so much. But thats no doubt due to the fact I left the cols long ago and now it exiestsonly in my boyhood memories and on TV.
Tough winter in Toledo this year. Sorry guys.
I hope to visit Toledo in November on the 10th anniversary of my Dad's death. 11-11-05 was the last time I was there.
We buried him on Veteran's Day and 11-11-15 is my new target date for a road trip to say goodbye to Mom in Marblehead and Dad on Central Avenue Toledo.
