Raging Moderate by Will Durst One thing you can say about this whole TSA enhanced pat-down mess: nobody will ever board Virgin Airlines again without ruefully grimacing.

First off, I’d been working two lower-paying jobs, as I’ve been unable […]

Raging Moderate by Will Durst The fourth Thursday of November is definitely the bestest holiday. Food, Family, Friends and Football. Four of the five F’s.
