I’ve driven large sections of almost all of these over the decades, but none of them end to end. Closest I’ve come is I-10, but I broke off to head south on the turnpike before I got to Jacksonville. Have to say I’m surprised that they’ve never bypassed Breezewood (which I remember from the turnpike as a kid driving from Michigan to New York in the sixties). I guess tunneling the mountain would be too much of a PITA and disruptive to residents.
Take a break from this absurd depressing election with a tour of a 35,000-year old French cave. Check out the slide show.
A long but useful history of the conservative intellectual, from Matthew Continetti.
The roof blows off it:
There’s no way to tell what people think. It’s impossible for most Americans to form a judgment with which they feel comfortable, because they do not have sources of information they can trust. Fox News is in a civil war between the pro- and anti-Trump Republicans. The other networks are with Hillary. The major media outlets have lost credibility. Only 32% of Americans said they had “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of confidence in the news media in a September Gallup Poll survey. That’s the lowest level in history, and should be no surprise: the major media has to spin a new cover-up every couple of days, before it is finished putting the previous set of lies to bed.
That’s why Americans don’t simply watch the nightly news and go to bed. They read the rumors on the Internet and circulate them to their friends. They create networks of people they trust in the hope of obtaining an accurate account of what is happening around them.
That’s why I’m still calling this election for Donald J. Trump. The polls are meaningless. Perceptions are morphing as rapidly as the new-model Terminator in the molten steel vat at the end of the movie. The election will be won and lost a dozen times between now and Election Day. And when Americans finally go into the voting booth, they will not be able to think of a any reasons to vote for Hillary Clinton–only reasons to vote against Donald Trump. There are far more compelling reasons to vote against Clinton. And that’s how the election will go.
I hope this is true, but I’m skeptical.
Heterodox U has put together a guide. My alma mater in Ann Arbor doesn’t fare well, but at least it’s not Missouri or Oregon. Keep it in mind both in sending your kid there, or hiring.

North Carolina Democrats quickly raise $13,000 to replace a firebombed Republican campaign office office. Credit where it’s due.
Don’t worry, they won’t ruin sex. I think that, like other technological advances, they will increase opportunities for more people.
Apropos of this thread, stop telling me I’m violent, or I’ll kill you.
