At the Airport, Reading Resistance is Futile!

I'm at the airport - CLT, waiting for a plane that will take me to Washington, then, another plane to arrive in Cleveland this afternoon. Airports are not fun places to wait. The chairs aren't comfortable, the decor is boring - gray and white - and, in Charlotte's airport, due to remodeling, there are few TVs.

I downloaded the newest Ann Coulter book. She's the perfect travel read - funny, light, doesn't need to much concentration.

Here's an excerpt from it, about election irregularities, and why we should be getting in the face of those screaming about Trump's election/campaign 'scandals':
In the 1990s, Chinese nationals were literally dragging duffel bags of money into the DNC1 as President Clinton allowed sensitive ballistic-missile guidance technology to be transferred to the Chinese government.2 No charges. No independent counsel.

As a presidential candidate in 2008, Edwards lied up a storm about getting his mistress pregnant as his wife was dying of cancer. Only through the generous support of his well-heeled donors was he able to hide his mistress from the public. This donor-funded scam went on for months, until the National Enquirer finally caught Edwards visiting his mistress and newborn baby in the Beverly Hilton hotel.8

It's interesting to see how much of the past 25 years or so I had forgotten. Events happens so fast, and our own personal concerns loom large in our minds. It's easy to skim over the news, and, if the headline doesn't read, WAR IS DECLARED, we tend to let it pass us by.

I wish Ann wasn't so fixated on the Clintons' misdeeds; more about Obama and his crew would be nice to spend some time dissecting. However, it's making the time pass.

Few TVs means far less CNN. So there's that.

I haven't been in CLT since 2012 or so. Are all those rocking chairs still there? Those were comfy if you didn't need to be at a connecting gate any time soon.

+1 on the CLT rocking chairs. Used to fly to and from the biz jet gig via CLT frequently.

Still have the rocking chairs. I actually got to sit in one before my flight (I was dropped off on my husband's way to work).
