Times have Changed…
…since Judge Roy Bean dispensed justice from his store, as the only law west of the Pecos. The question that I ask myself is whether those days of yesteryear will return. Will people in the West require justice now that lawlessness in high places is becoming the norm?
Roy Bean also sold ice, beer, and jerky at his store.

I can tell you, as a retired flight attendant, I have worked a few “work to rule’ slowdowns, they ARE effective. A glass (when we used to have glass) breaks in the galley…can’t just clean it up at the gate. No, no, the rug has to be changed out, maintenance has to come, someone has to sign-off the logbook, the flight is delayed, the crew goes illegal, etc. This is how it works. You are following the strictest interpretation of the FAA rules. I am beyond THRILLED to see these pilots do this. Selfishly, I don’t want to fly with a blood-clotting pilot. Sudafed used to be one of the few “allowed” meds- now a shot with UNKNOWN substances and short/long term effects are perfectly fine? Hard pass. Even though I worked for a competing airline and still have flight benefits, I will gladly join their picket line if they strike. And I am not at all pro-union. Bodily autonomy HAS to be the red line.
Russian Stuff – Leaving Port
The distinctive “weenie pack” forward (SS-N-3b missiles) suggests that we’re looking at a Soviet Navy Project 58 Groznyy-class guided-missile cruiser (Ракетные крейсера проекта, RKR), also known as the Kynda class. The later Kynda Class ships carried a second weenie pack aft.
The Slava class, Soviet designation Project 1164 Atlant (Russian for Atlas), is a class of guided missile cruisers designed and constructed in the Soviet Union for the Soviet Navy, and currently operated by the Russian and Ukrainian Navies.
They don’t leave port that often. And sometimes they need to be towed back these days, which is why longer deployments are accompanied by ocean-going tugs.
