Re: Thailand

I'm reading lots of conflicting reports about the schedule of rescue attempts.

I know enough about cave diving to know how dangerous it is for experienced divers, much less someone who has never put a regulator in their mouth. This is really terrifying.

Re: school daze (How we learned our NBCs)

I was taking an on-line survey to get frequent flyer miles, and they asked about my citizenship:

Along with the above choices, there was also a couple options for non-citizens, but their definition of a natural born citizen made me think of Fogbow.

Re: Tennessee US Senate 2018

Phil Bredesen is probably the only Democrat that could win a state-wide election in Tennessee. (He was governor from 2003-11, and won his 2nd term in a landslide.) And a lot of voters recognize that Marsha Blackburn is a frickin' nut. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
