Without naming the hotels because it is not entirely their fault, rude and inconsiderate conduct is apparently becoming common. One morning, preparing to depart, I sought in vain for one of the complimentary luggage trolleys one usually […]

Yes, Virginia, There is Still an America

The satiric site the Babylon Bee, found it necessary to start a second online site, Not the Bee. As serious pronouncements by politicians, academicians, and celebrities become increasingly outlandish, too often what the Bee writes of as humorous becomes real news a short time later.
