I flew to Albuquerque this afternoon. Now hanging at the airport to meet my stepfather and drive up to Santa Fe for my stepbro’s 50th birthday. Quick flight, but I chose a window seat on the right side of the plane so I could play with the camera. The views reminded me why I’m such a happy immigrant to the Mountain Time Zone.
This accidental shot that turned out to be a good bookend for the start of the trip.
Fly Frontier! Until They Go Bankrupt!
Couple of photos from the plane:
Little bit of a bumpy landing:
The Albuquerque airport. The light and coloring in the west are so amazing, even the airport is beautiful.
Now ensconced in the Sunport’s faux western workspace, pretending to edit a brief (hi, co-counsel!) while in fact playing with photos and receiving regular Bronco updates from Tim.
This case, although likely tough to bring under current antidiscrimination law, would be resolved on a plaintiff’s summary judgment motion under the Anti-Butthead Act, the key provision of which reads, “Don’t be a butthead.” The high school, although fully entitled to implement whatever religious principles it wants,* is being buttheaded about a very simple thing. Let the kid wear whatever damn gown he wants.
His family says
they’re not expecting the school to change policy by next week, but hope the school would consider eventually having all students wear the same colored gowns to avoid the situation all together.
Laudable non-buttheaded thinking!
*I am completely unqualified to opine on Christian doctrine, but I thought it had more to do with loving your fellow human than what color gown he’s wearing.
