The Morning Shave
Portland Hotel Calls Cops On Black Guest For “Loitering”. – Haven’t we moved past all of this kind of nonsense yet? I understand the need to confirm whether or not somebody sitting in the lobby is a guest or not. But you don’t need to preemptively call the cops and certainly don’t need to kick a guest out of the hotel because of your mistake.

Hero Pilot Lands Plane ‘Blind’ After Freak Hailstorm Wrecked the Cockpit. – Don’t underestimate the power of Mother Nature. Hail is no joke. I’m simply in awe of how this pilot was able to land with the windshield looking like this. Imagine if it caved in on him and the cabin lost pressure?
