That large herd of cruise ships, hanging out in oceans surrounded by Bermuda's islands, must make a decision. A hurricane will probably be at their anchorages on Sunday. So they must move. Last time, the herd moved in mass into the Gulf of Mexico. No good. Another potential hurricane will be on the Yucatan Peninsula on Sunday. It could be anywhere in the Gulf.

Maybe move north into the Atlantic. This first hurricane is expected to move up the coast. And like many such storms, may turn sharper to simply chase that herd. In the next two days, they must decide and move.

Gamblers - time to place your bets.

I'm generally unable to ride in convertibles (anything faster than about 35 miles per hour, and the negative air pressure causes horrible pain in my ears), but I do like a good sunroof.

Yeabut, if you're wearing a tube top, you don't need a convertible to ride with your top down.

Not only that, but: in recent times CA lawyers have argued, in court, that allowing certain inmates to be paroled early would deplete the inmate firefighting program!

Partly because, once the inmate prisoners are out of jail, they are prohibited from having firefighting jobs, due to their criminal records.

Ugh... That legal argument is not a good look, for sure. I'm actually loosely in favor of the program in general--it's entirely voluntary, and the few prisoners I've seen interviewed about it all say they enjoy the work and like feeling useful. It's certainly more rehabilitative than sitting in a cell all day. But prohibiting them from being firefighters after they get out is beyond stupid.

Isn't that some shit, they learn one useful to society skill in prison and are prohibited from using it for pay.

Sacramento's dysfunctional. Sacramento is also a one-party State capital. Wanna guess which party I stopped voting for?

The Don took out a Sharpie to again prove a hurricane would strike Alabama. To prove, unlike all other presidents, that he was in control.

UG said it must be true. Trump said so.

Come on, V.

What have the Democrats got for me to trust them? Socialism and the Left should never be trusted by anything remotely human.

Closely inhuman, yeah.

Do they, ah, have something for you...?
