I don't know if it is Adam, but there must be a reason this is mentioned.

If there were no reason or meaning, there would be no need to include this incident in the Gospels.

Your explanation is rather poetic, or deep. I'm just not sure.

That's okay, Mikey; you can double-down or the law can be changed.

Either way, the stink will remain in the air of Indiana for a long time.

Stickers are one, inexpensive way of reaching the public who are right there

in front of your door. They are certainly effective, especially for the smaller businesses.

Newspaper ads reach out to those still considering whether they will visit the region, and if so, where they will stay, eat, etc. Ads are something a Chamber of Commerce can organize and put together.

It's not necessarily either/or.

I know quite a bit aboout PG Sittenfeld - he's a city councilman

in my hometown.

He has money and contacts, but, unfortunately, has generated local controversy by flip-flop - er, changing his mind- on his campaign promise, as well as saying he would drop out of the Senate race if Strickland entered. Br, other than that, PG has quite a future.i

I agree - would like Manchin to remain as WV Senator.

WV is not likely to elect another Democratic Senator for a while.
They just replaced in 2014 a Dem. (Rockefeller) with a Rep. (Moore-Capito).

Do you mean Reid (D-NV), rather than Reid (D-VT)?

And what is the difference between retirement and not seeking re-election?

We hope Portman is toast. He has loads of money, and I'm

somewhat concerned about Strickland's age. Although he appears quite chipper, he's in his 70's, as am I, but I believe the electorate, in general, prefers younger candidates over older ones.

It might serve the Indiana businesses who do not and will not discriminate

to band together and take out full-page ads in the NY Times, Washington Post and LA newspapers, announcing that they welcome all customers, etc.

When groups from specific cities, such as those of NCAA sports teams, etc. are expected, Indiana businesses would do well to welcome all their fans by way of ads specifying non-discrimination and welcome to all those who attend.

The conversation between the pilot and co-pilot in the minutes before the pilot

left the cockpit need to be analyzed by forensic psychiatrists.

There was a report that that later in the conversation the co-pilot's replies were "curt".
Could he have taken offensive at the words or manner of something the pilot said?

One of the psychiatrists on the tv discussion last evening felt the act by the co-pilot was done on an impulse.
I'm inclined to go with that theory.
Perhaps thoughts of revenge/destruction were latent until brought forth by something Lubitz took from the conversation with the pilot.

I'm not blaming the pilot by any means.
All of us know how words can be misconstrued by a listener, no matter ow well-intentioned the speaker may have been.
