1477 - Rain and Gaza
Pouring rain for much of the day and more to come. Seattle clobbered the old rain record for this date. It had been .54 inches, and we have an inch or so already. We just don't get rain like this in July, but we actually need it. There have been two huge news stories on over the past couple of days. One was the shooting down of Malaysian Airways flight 17 over Ukraine, killing 298 people, over half of them Dutch. The other is the war between Hamas and Israel over Gaza. It is all terrible stuff. And you know what, there is nothing new. Russia was behind the attack on MH 17, and they have done that before and killed hundreds. This is an attack right at the behest of President Putin. And the Arabs and Israelis seem to enjoy hating and killing each other. It is hardly interesting news, except for the horror of the children and innocents involved. As for me, I have no interest in visiting Palestine, and I have no intention to fly again, having avoided it since 2003.
