Today was disappointing, yes. But we’re not done. And the more years you pile on from here, the less of a chance he’ll survive.

I’m literally afraid to check my blood pressure. I think a little later when it’s time for my evening dose I might need to double it. Blameless life my ass! And while my jarhead days are decades past that part of me is so furious I wished I still lived in northern VA, or even in the eastern panhandle of WV.
