  • Into the Blue

    This Friday I will be embarking upon my first plane ride. I have been on a helicopter but the chopper had the good sense to remain within eyeshot of the ground. The jetliner will be unwilling to show this courtesy. I will be in the big leagues.

    Recently, as Sen. Elizabeth Warren gave a speech criticizing then-nominee now Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped her from speaking.
