    This is pretty much my social media outlet. I'm delving deep into this lifestyle. That joke sounded funny in my head. Didn't work in the real world.

    The BLUES

    I grew up listening to the blues. In cleveland, we had several places were hotspot for the blues revival in the late 80s. As a teen, I would hit places such as wilberts, brothers lounge and my favourite, the fat fish blue. Cleveland at the time had the best blues scene in the US, I feel good knowing I enjoyed it and took it all in. Pretty sure it all started with the hooker and Raitt duo. One of my favourites was Adam and satan at the fat fish, a place where a giant plate of fresh crawfish was $9.99. Blues Is happy music, there's s quote from hooker stating that effect somewhere. It makes you feel good. Edit, 9ne of the best was always Robert Lockwood junior who was a wonderful man. And lived in cleveland.

    Quitting smoking (almost) 1 year in.

    Nothing like that cool first drag in the morning from a fine Laramie cigarette. Actually I smoke good cigars, and when only fishing these days.

    Number of School Shootings Decreased

    There are 30,000 gun related deaths per year by firearms, and this number is not disputed. The U.S. population is 324,059,091 as of June 22, 2016. Do the math: 0.00925% of the population dies from gun related actions each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant! What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death: --65% of those deaths are by suicide, which would never be prevented by gun laws. --15% are by law enforcement in the line of duty and justified --17% are through criminal activity, gang and drug related or mentally ill persons - better known as gun violence. --3% are accidental discharge deaths. So technically, "gun violence" is not 30,000 annually, but drops to 5,100. Still too many? Now lets look at how those deaths spanned across the nation. --480 homicides (9.4%) were in Chicago --344 homicides (6.7%) were in Baltimore --333 homicides (6.5%) were in Detroit --119 homicides (2.3%) were in Washington D.C. (a 54% increase over prior years) So basically, 25% of all gun crime happens in just 4 cities. All 4 of those cities have strict gun laws, so it is not the lack of law that is the root cause. This basically leaves 3,825 for the entire rest of the nation, or about 75 deaths per state. That is an average because some States have much higher rates than others. For example, California had 1,169 and Alabama had 1. Now, who has the strictest gun laws by far? California, of course, but understand, it is not guns causing this. It is a crime rate spawned by the number of criminal persons residing in those cities and states. So if all cities and states are not created equal, then there must be something other than the tool causing the gun deaths. Are 5,100 deaths per year horrific? How about in comparison to other deaths? All death is sad and especially so when it is in the commission of a crime but that is the nature of crime. Robbery, death, rape, assault are all done by criminals. It is ludicrous to think that criminals will obey laws. That is why they are called criminals. But what about other deaths each year? --40,000+ die from a drug overdose-THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT! --36,000 people die per year from the flu, far exceeding the criminal gun deaths. --34,000 people die per year in traffic fatalities(exceeding gun deaths even if you include suicide). Now it gets good: --200,000+ people die each year (and growing) from preventable medical errors. You are safer walking in the worst areas of Chicago than you are when you are in a hospital! --710,000 people die per year from heart disease. It's time to stop the double cheeseburgers!

    Sadly, for those of us relegated to riding coach on discount airlines, these animals smell better and are better behaved than many passengers.
