There is no Combat! blog today, as I make my annual sacrifice of time and dignity to the commercial airline industry. By the time you read this, I’ll be stranded in Denver. If historical trends are somehow interrupted, I meet even make it all the way to Des Moines. Either way, I’ll be blogging again tomorrow. In the meantime, how about you catch up on the continued adventures of Diamond Joe Biden? I’m pretty sure he’s the perfect comic hero. He may also be the president of United Airlines.
