Next Up - The Virus!

That would be the coronavirus, country of origin apparently China and this morning's Drudge bannered that it may be transmitted from snakes!  Specifically a farmer's market that specializes in such food stuffs as bats, the afore-mentioned snakes and God knows what else.

Some major American airports are screening arriving passengers from countries afflicted with it. As they are most notably Asian passengers,  do you know where this is going?  Betcha do - the Politically Correct will start hyperventilating in 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 seconds, only to scream "Racial Profiling!"  

In case you missed it, I made a mechanic laugh yesterday.  Oh, so you did miss it.  Richie's Toyota 4Runner has been acting up.  It trembles at stop lights and has gone on to shake like a belly dancer while running.  So he took it back day before yesterday.  When the mechanic called yesterday afternoon, Richie seemed to be having difficulties explaining what, exactly, the car was doing.  I leaned into the phone and yelled, "It was shaking like a virgin on her wedding night!" and heard his guffaw.  It did prove to be diagnostic (of a sort) and Richie got the car back later that afternoon.
