    Whenever people ask why women don’t wanna come forward? Maybe because men don’t seem to be getting punished for these things.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Boeing Co. knew months before a deadly 737 Max crash that a cockpit alert wasn’t working the way the company had told buyers of the single-aisle jetliner.

    But the planemaker didn’t share its findings with airlines or the Federal Aviation Administration until after a Lion Air plane went down off the coast of Indonesia in October, according to a Boeing statement Sunday. The accident occurred after erroneous readings by a single angle-of-attack sensor triggered software that pushed the jet’s nose down until pilots lost control.

    Boeing’s latest disclosure raises new questions about the 737 Max’s development and testing -- and the company’s lack of transparency. The alert was supposed to flash when two angle-of-attack vanes sent conflicting data about the relation of the plane’s nose to the oncoming air stream. Boeing had told airlines and pilots that the so-called AOA disagree warning was standard across the Max fleet, as on a previous generation of 737 jets.

    You misspelled "dividends." Jobs are a necessary evil that suppress stock prices.

    Re: Nice Planet: Screw It, I'm Outta Here

    Ten years ago, I lived in this little village in Alaska for a couple of years, and then moved back to Denver. This last fall, I moved back to the same village. Back then, I taught a combination 5th/6th grade class. The last group of kids I taught back then graduated last spring, so it's been kind of fun seeing what they're up to. One kid, I had heard, had some legal trouble a while back, and is living in the town that is the travel hub for the Yukon-Kuskokwin Delta. Just in the past few days, I learned that he's been living in prison there, and just got out on parole. It sucks. The thing he did, and by all accounts he appears to have done it, is pretty much the worst thing there is. I mean, that's a matter of opinion. obvs, but this thing, it's gotta be top 3 worst on the list of any decent human being. I would never have seen this coming.

    Feeling gross.

    Let's not be divisive here...


    Some very fine people are murderers.


    About an hour after I wrote that on here last night, I got a message from a friend up in another village linking an article in the Nome Nugget (what a super-amazing name for a newspaper, btw) about a contract rape. Contract. Rape.

    What a completely bizarre thing. My mind was quite blown. I can't quite bring myself to link the article, because the details are so grizzly and so completely the opposite of funny, but this quote from the DA is fabulous:
    I've never seen or heard of a case like this before," Jamgochian said. "It is unique.
