He's a little battered, but still beautiful. I took this as he perched on the flowers on our Lugustrum. This was taken with a zoom, but I was still rather close to him. Enjoy on this gorgeous Monday morning.
I am coming home. I need to be there and be part of the solution. Moms Demand Action is getting some traction, but they can use the lean-in of a few U.S. Army Airborne Infantry Rangers. I am only sorry that I did not stand up to this threat to our nation before. I am sorry. I was busy.
I have been overseas in Afghanistan and in NATO nations for half a decade while the insanity of the National Rifle Association expanded and exploded, and the NRA became, essentially, the tool of death in the United States. They made mass killings normal.
Well done, NRA. But this shit is too much.
Here's hoping an army of other active duty officers and enlisted rise up to take this on.

On this most important day for our democracy, please remember that the geniuses who represent us in Raleigh had the foresight to make climate change illegal in North Carolina. We're off the hook!
The effects of human-induced climate change are being felt in every corner of the United States, scientists reported Tuesday, with water growing scarcer in dry regions, torrential rains increasing in wet regions, heat waves becoming more common and more severe, wildfires growing worse, and forests dying under assault from heat-loving insects.
None of that is happening here, you know. The Tillisberger declared there will be no accelerating sea-level rise in North Carolina.
