FDA bans JUUL ecigs


@nytimes: Breaking News: The FDA ordered Juul to stop selling e-cigarettes in the U.S., a big setback to the brand blamed for the teen vaping crisis. https://nyti.ms/3OirPAE

Frequent Flyer free tix

Been trying to get back to Europe for a while. Got an AA card and are up to 200k points.

A first class tix now costs 700k points !!!!! Or, they are doing something new now.... 250k points plus $919 in cash. Which I guess is kind of the same as buying an economy ticket with an upgrade? Just plugged in a simple search JFK to Paris.

I've been a member of AA frequent flyer forever.. and it always feels like whenever I want to go somewhere they have upped the number of points needed and I'm always a little bit behind

Anyone else dealing with this?

Just heard CNN panelist say that unless the J6 hearings result

in a successful prosecution, they will have failed.

Do you agree?


Just spent week with family on vacation. One out of many is a wingnut. Kept saying hearing was one sided and lacked due justice. I personally, have not heard any rebuttal to all the horror. Is there???? Because they plead 5th or don't appear? is this an obvious fact?

Meanwhile - horrors continue in Ukraine - Zelenskyy

Updated 3:00 p.m. ET, June 2, 2022

About 20% of Ukraine's territory is under Russian control, according to President Volodymyr Zelensky, with the Donbas region "almost entirely destroyed."

Roughly 800 people are hiding in bomb shelters underneath a chemical factory that was hit by Russian missiles in the eastern city of Severodonetsk, a Ukrainian official told CNN. While street fighting still continues in the city, Russian forces now occupy "most" of it.

Zelensky claimed more than 200,000 Ukrainian children have been forcibly taken to Russia since the start of the war. More than 1.6 million people from Ukraine and the breakaway Donbas area have crossed into Russia so far, Russian state media reported.

Russia said Ukraine's demands to the West for advanced rocket launchers is a "direct provocation" after the US and UK agreed to provide new missile systems to Kyiv. NATO said it didn't foresee Russia retaliating to the US move.

Any recommendations? - cutting the cable cord and getting streaming services

We are in the midst of doing that
Direct stream and YouTube Cable highest ranked. Sling good too.

Naturally some TVs aren't smart...

And of course cable companies are upping their internet costs

I hope Sen.Chris Murphy D-CT is president one day! Such passion

and resolve. If we're talking about hypothetical dream teams. It would be a toss up. Any combo with Sheldon Whitehouse, Tim Ryan, and Chris Murphy for me!

Exactly what would you recommend that President Biden do to turn his negatives

around? Just read his approval rating was at 39. That means lots of Democrats have fled. I don't think "trust him" , "trust them" will cut it right now, do you?
