The thing about flying for a living?

Is that it doesn’t, when the press is on, leave a whole lot of time for other things. You can’t phone one in from the only seat in the Kfir. As yet.

I’ve got a couple of good posts floating around inside the cranium. Just need the time to liberate them.

Until then, talk amongst yourselves.

Your host awoke this morning to 200+ comments in the moderation queue, and only some of them were legitimate.

The rest, well: Let’s just say that there are things you can see which you cannot un-see.

I’m still wrestling with a work-around, while approving non-spam as fast as I can. The favor of your patience is requested.
