Sully's Flight

I'm not often clairvoyant, but it happened to me again on the morning of Captain "Sully's" historic flight in Jan 2009. It was 5am and snowing very hard.

The Man Who Accurately Read the Trump Phenomenon

To #DavidKaufman of the NY POST. Terrific appearance on Fox News this today. Your analysis of why people voted for Trump was refreshingly honest and sympathetic. You heard our voices and spoke for us. You validated our frustrations. We were not motivated by racism-and you determined this as a fact. We definitely felt left… View More
