  1. So, we should look for group rates on flights to the Mecca? It amazes me how humans are losing their humantiy. It is slipping away, replaced by greed, avarice and other sundry things. Love and respect are things of the past.

      1. As you no doubt know, there’s a lot of contention over that. Now that a few days have gone by, I hope both parties will be willing to address issues of incivility and “vitriol” as they affect our country. I don’t think the shooter was following orders from the extreme right, but he was certainly operating in an environment tinged with a lot of hostility and paranoia politically. It seemed as though he was angry at Gifford for some, demented, reason. I think his own insanity pulled the trigger, though.

        I’m quite distraught at what happened in Arizona, as we all no doubt are. I’m desperately looking for a silver lining to this massive, massive cloud.
