I don’t know about you but I am sick and tired of seeing the senseless mass shootings. We are all heartbroken about the innocent lifes lost and after a few days we go on until the next one happens. Something must be done. F*ck the fiscal cliff, we are talking about life and death here, dead bodies of kindergarteners this time!!!! So, please, hug your children. I was obviously kidding yesterday about putting up mine for adoption. Sometimes I want to kill them but, deep down, I love them more than anything! It absolutely mega saddens me of thinking of those parents whose kids did not come home! It saddens me and it angers me the extent of violence and guns ingrained in our society. With heavy heart I write today…so do not expect any jokes, I just do not feel like it.
The daily Reader Question has been replaced by a special section today…
I think the Onion catches the mood of the country with this “F*ck Everything, Nation Reports“.
Instead of violent acts, how about we all try to do Random Acts of Kindness & Restore Faith in Humanity!
Are We Stupid? How Long Are We Going to Allow Gun Violence To Go On? – This describes my feelings right now!
A very balanced article here with “Twelve facts about guns and mass shootings in the United States“
Milevalue gets into more detail on the British Airways Online Award Search Tool. I like it!
Hack my Trip has a pretty good article on how to Complain Properly. Good common sense advice. We especially liked step #0!
Added a new blog to Google Reader: Ruffin on the Road. The post “Making the Turn” has amazing pictures. Thanks to kind twitter follower @Love2travel for the recommendation!

You can pretty much guarantee if you tout the Disney Card you will appear here and feel the full brunt of TBB wrath! Delta Points had the audacity to slip in the affliate credit card link under the disguise “Disney Cruise Lines“ (in a guest post by our Tamara who really tried hard this time to provide some good content), giving the impression to the reader that clicking that link will take him/her to Disney Cruises website. But nooooooooooooooooo, he slips in the link to the Disney Card. Shameful!!! Later in that same post he slips another link to a page with all the Delta Skymiles cards. Unbelievable!!
Million Mile Secrets in a tiny “Last Day to Apply” alarming post managed to slip in sixteen 16 affiliate credit card links! Yes, sixteen!! Our eye sockets hurt by the assault! For the record, he still holds the record with 20 in a single post set someday last month.
Southwest starts charging fees And it probably is only a start. There is a wide misperception in the industry that Southwest is a discount carrier. I find there is nothing discounty about their fare stucture. And that no assigned seating thing always freaks me out!
ODDZ & ENDZ
You know the Chinese are such Communists when you can go to a Club and walk on actual gold bars, WTF!
