NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!

I gotta say, I’m still in shock.  Las Vegas is one of the most strict on safety places anywhere in their hotels.  That this happened there is sobering, frightening and I just don’t understan anymore.

They need blood, or did a few hours ago, if you’re near the city.

If anyone believes this one man did this atrocious act all on his own [if at all], I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

^Yeah.  There’s a lot here that doesn’t add up and smells like Sea World.  It took months before the FBI made any conclusions in San Bernardino but within hours they proclaim a conclusion before any investigation?  I’m shocked they said anything this early.

On Sunday I was going through a very large airport West of the Mississippi.   My shuttle service called me to see if they could pick me up 45 minutes earlier than my scheduled time due to security delays at the airport.

When I got there, the lines were unbelievable.  Two dogs were walked up and down the lines.

I heard about the Las Vegas massacre after I arrived home.

My theory is that there was some chatter out there, but nothing specific, and so airports were on alert.

^Intetesting.  Something’s up but not sure what.  I’ve been to Vegas.  You’re screened and there are cameras, cameras, cameras everywhere.  Plus, because of suicide prevention, the windows are not only unopenable (as these were) but have sensors on them.  Security would have known immediately if the window was broken.  Suicide is a real concern in LV. This does not make sense so far.
