An Egyptian Vulture, one of 192 bird species that can be found on Socotra. (Piotr Kot)
I landed on this gallery at the LAT… Socotra, an island in an archipelago off Yemen. I had never heard of it… reachable only by boat during limited periods of the year (monsoon season knocks the boat out) ’til a runway went in ’99. Like Gallapagos, I gather, go soon. Masses of the upright and walking on two feet are arriving (a different sort of vulture).
In a gallery at Telegraph.. I saw these two donkeys. (But was not sure I wanted to look at them all day Friday!) I say make THEM Speaker and Majority Leader.
I caught Nancy late today, her public weep.. or whatever that was. I cringed. Anyway, San Francisco sits on a ton of dirty secrets in that event, from the morning, the day of the killings to the arrest to the trial… probably all the way to Dan White’s suicide.
