|20160926 17:26||Mullah Richard||I'm coming in from the northwest, so O'Hare is actually closer unless I'm flying Southwest or some obscure Delta flight.|
There IS a good deal of construction around ORD, though. Took me miles out of my way to get to my normal off-site cark park. Midway is much simpler in that regard.
I'll check out the Central Ave. route next time.

Sally said, "I saw Jonny's peepee."
Concerned, Mom asked "What did you think of that?"
Sally replied, "It reminded me of a peanut."
Relieved, Mom said, "Why, because it was just a little nubbin?"
"No", Sally replied, "Salty."

|20160926 09:40||3dc||From i-55 I usually take Central to W55th instead of Cicero - which I despise too.|
Not saying bad things don't happen on Central - just its easier to see stuff there. Then I am coming from the west burbs so I take 355 south to 55 then the slant up to Central. Distance is shorter for me to O'Hare but it's mainly back roads and roads around O'Hare seem to be continuously under major construction.

she made them all promise to send a postcard from the honeymoon with a few words on how marital sex felt.
The first girl sent a card from Hawaii two days after the wedding. The card said nothing but “Nescafe”. Mom was puzzled at first, but then went the kitchen and got out
the Nescafe jar. It said: “Good till the last drop.”
Mom blushed, but was pleased for her daughter.
The second girl sent the card from Vermont a week after the wedding, and the card read:”Benson & Hedges”. Mom now knew to go straight to her husband’s cigarettes, and
she read from the Benson & Hedges pack: “Extra long. King Size”.
She was again slightly embarrassed but still happy for her daughter.
The third girl left for her honeymoon in the Caribbean. Mom waited for a week, nothing. Another week went by and still nothing. Then after a whole month, a card
finally arrived. Written on it with shaky handwriting were the words “British Airways”.
Mom took out her latest Harper’s Bazaar magazine, flipped through the pages
fearing the worst, and finally found the ad for British Airways.
The ad said:
“Three times a day, seven days a week, both ways.”

They aren't supposed to booze up. Drugs are not forbidden in the same way, I believe. This CNN report from 2010 gives an idea of the scope of the problem. I suspect, given the mass production of Captagon by ISIS for their own troops and as a key export item to the region, the problem is worse now.

Don't discount the facile Arab mind. No altering-substance required.
(yes I know the Iranians published it. But the 'source' was likely Arab and the intended audience wasn't the Israelis or the West.)
|20160923 21:15||trailing wife||Snowy Thing, The Times of Israel had the same report about Aleppo datelined 9/22 at 7:21 pm as "Russain state media claimed..." as reported by the Arabic language version of the Sputnik news agency; the Israeli government did not immediately respond to requests for comment.|
Apparently the Iranian Fars news agency was also involved.
I think someone at the news agency was posting while under the influence.

Every item was carefully and accurately transferred. Interestingly enough many found their bags had two(2) open inspection stickies.
|20160922 14:05||Skidmark||Granted the fleet is aging, maintenance is poor and there is a dumbening of the workforce, but with train derailments, shooters, riots and east coast bombers my 'conspiracy critic' has started whispering, "How many of these events are intercepted Mass Destruction Threats (MDT)."|

We were directed to gather all of our belongings and exit the aircraft.
Fellow next to me said "DogGammit(sic), that's the second time that's happened to me, TODAY!"
We deplaned and within 30 mins another was found with which we could fully board into the same seats. Good luck with the luggage, eh?

Sputnik Arabic Language sounds like it ought to be Russian propaganda. Is it?
|20160922 02:31||trailing wife||Ynet and The Times of Israel had nothing like that, Snowy Thing.|
I can't imagine Israel trusting any other than the Americans on that list, nor being in the mountains above Aleppo at all, nor directing Arab rebel fighters, though I admit to knowing absolutely nothing about their clandestine operations.

30 Israeli, Foreign Intelligence Officers Killed in Russia's Caliber Missile Attack in Aleppo
Wed Sep 21, 2016 12:12 30 Israeli, Foreign Intelligence Officers Killed in Russia's Caliber Missile Attack in Aleppo
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Russian warships stationed in Syria's coastal waters targeted and destroyed a foreign military operations room, killing over two dozen Israeli and western intelligence officers.
"The Russian warships fired three Caliber missiles at the foreign officers' coordination operations room in Dar Ezza region in the Western part of Aleppo near Sam'an mountain, killing 30 Israeli and western officers," the Arabic-language service of Russia's Sputnik news agency quoted battlefield source in Aleppo as saying on Wednesday.
The operations room was located in the Western part of Aleppo province in the middle of sky-high Sam'an mountain and old caves. The region is deep into a chain of mountains.
Several US, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers were also killed along with the Israeli officers. The foreign officers who were killed in the Aleppo operations room were directing the terrorists' attacks in Aleppo and Idlib.
Earlier in September, the Syrian army units launched a preemptive strike on the terrorists of the so-called Aleppo Operations Room in their gathering centers near Castello road in the Northern areas of Aleppo and Mallah farms, foiling their plots to attack the region's supply route, a source said....
