If you ever fly through DCA you can see one of his pieces over the arrivals area: flyreagan.com/sites/flyreagan.

Kinda wish we could've seen Trump try to action-movie-drive the presidential Cadillac around DC, imagining he could go to the Capitol to heroically lead his Qanon troops to victory (and more likely end up crashing into a bollard on Penn Ave NW)

Sadly I expect Dems will do nothing about this other than cluck tongues and go "for shame for shame, vote" before pardoning Trump as a conciliatory "we go high" gesture

They did it. They fucking did it. The whole west was crowing about how they’d finally suffer like all of us and they didn’t. It’s no coincidence that twitter won’t even let you RT Chinese news sources now. Being able to see what fucking cruel useless failures our leaders are compared to what’s possible is very dangerous

Was installing a third-party dashcam mount to my rearview mirror stalk, and I hung a bit too heavily on the mirror to shift my weight, and the whole rearview mirror assembly snapped off AND cracked the windshield, man I hate cars

Just went to the Downtown Dartmouth Open Street festival and there was a little Ferry wagon rolling around. (Dartmouth , obviously, not Massachusetts)
