Problem is that seat pitch doesn't mean much. It's the distance from the back of Chair A to the back of Chair B. So a plane with a 30" seat pitch with seats that are 2" thick will have more legroom than a plane with a 31" seat pitch but seats that are 4" thick. Without the seat thickness, you don't know how much… » 10/30/14 12:20pm Thursday 12:20pm

I did not know they were behind Eagle Rare! Actually, a better way of putting it would be that I did not know Sazerac was part of the Buffalo Trace family. And now looking it up, I see they also do WL Weller Antique, which I also very much enjoy. » 10/29/14 2:28pm Wednesday 2:28pm

There are all SORTS of great roads in western Washington. The trick is to get on them early so you have them to yourself. Rte 20 through North Cascades is awesome. Get there early when there aren't any other cars on the road and carve on through to your hearts content. Rte 112 along the peninsula is great. The Little… » 10/28/14 3:39pm Tuesday 3:39pm

Thousands upon thousands of miles away and ALSO wasn't particularly dangerous up until this year. For 30 years before hand there were only something like 1,500 documented cases. It was something that came around once or twice a decade and killed a couple of hundred people and then went away. Even if you DID want to… » 10/24/14 11:36am 10/24/14 11:36am

Dude, what are you even talking about? First, the judge recommended both of Stewart's top preferences for her incarceration but was denied by the BOP due to media access to one and space issues at the other. Second, both of the other men involved in the case got jail sentences too. » 10/21/14 4:07pm 10/21/14 4:07pm

Flight 961's pilot was fighting with the hijackers at the time of the descent. He managed to control the descent but the plane abruptly banked (probably due to continued fighting in the cockpit) just before impact with the ocean causing the wing to hit before the fuselage and tearing it apart. Had the pilot not been… » 10/20/14 9:59am 10/20/14 9:59am

Mainly poor leadership and poor logistics. An Iraqi commander at the last Army base to fall in Anbar basically said they could have easily held the base and taken out the ISIS attackers if anyone had bothered sending the re-inforcements and ammunition resupply they asked for. » 10/14/14 10:41am 10/14/14 10:41am

US soldiers haven't fought a war to "preserve our freedom" since arguably the War of 1812. The people who have "preserved our freedom" since then are politicians, lawyers and activists. » 10/10/14 8:37am 10/10/14 8:37am

Even that's not a guarantee if you have cash they can take. Really, you have to be white with all of the accoutrements of money (nice clothes, nice car, etc) but without any actual cash on you. Unless you're really, really rich. Then you can do whatever you want. » 10/09/14 1:29pm 10/09/14 1:29pm

Why shouldn't they pay hotel taxes on income they get from functioning as a hotel? The limits on days per year they can accept guests prevents people from buying up apartments/houses and using them as full time short term rentals thus a) somewhat preserving housing stock and b) preventing disruption to neighboring… » 10/08/14 8:02am 10/08/14 8:02am
