The case on the Rosenberg's was closed a long time ago. When Khrushchev died his memoirs we smuggled to the west and published. Khrushchev praised the Rosenberg's and said the information they provided greatly helped the USSR atomic bomb program.

TSA to get more aggressive with sexual assaults: on 9/22/17 overheard conversation involving a tsa puke to the effect that the 'courtesy' "you can keep your shoes on" nod to old folks is going away. One, two, three, everyone do the happy monkey dance for the pukes, perves and thieves of tsa. Since your congresscritter gets a pass, he/she doesn't care a bit about your travails.

Have you ever had the experience where in a sudden blast you lost your shoes, and didn't know how it happened?

I know this day is coming. Soon. They will force you through the full body scanner same as before. Then you will step into the next anteroom, where powerful blasts of air will instantly disrobe you: pants, shirts, shoes, undies. For children and the infirm, unyielding robots of lovingkindness will assist. Shwoop! A container will appear in an alcove, with a right-sized featureless grey smock. Put it on, or the waiting robots will do it to you. Your clothes and carryons will be whisked away to be packed in storage. You will find your assigned personal pod where, like in The Fifth Element, you will slip gently into unconsciousness. When you wake up, you will be at your destination, your clothes upon you, your bags in front of you. And away you go, you Eloi stud muffin you.

I shot a zebra in South Africa in 2002. I am surprised, maybe I shouldn't be, at the number of acquaintances locally that were repulsed that I effectively shot a "horse". There were a group of five local trackers to SA that were happy as hell I shot it as they got to eat zebra meat for the next week. I watched them gut and skin it.Christmas in May to them.
