Out of the Blue

We finally got the roadside assistance guy out to jumpstart MrsBlue's dead car, so it was homeside assistance in this case. He got it started, and confirmed what we suspected, that the battery was basically shot. So rather than let it idle to try and recharge the battery, I just drove it to the auto parts store and replaced the battery. It's now working right again, and it's nice to have confidence in it, especially in winter weather. Thankfully it died in front of our house where it was easy enough to deal with, rather than leaving us stranded somewhere.

Why am I not surprised? Too many people in the FAA have a cozy relationship with Boeing, with guaranteed positions with the company when they leave civil service. And I'm not just blaming the Trump administration (although they ARE the ones who claimed to be draining the swamp). The original certification of the 737 happened under just as badly a compromised FAA under the Obama admin. This has been going on a long time.

Same swamp, different alligators.
