The Wall Street Journal – October 16, 2018

Interest payments on the federal debt and military spending rose rapidly, while tax revenue failed to keep pace as the  Republican tax cuts for both individuals and corporations kicked in. “The deficit is absolutely higher than anyone would like.”

Just “robbing Peter to payoff Paul.”

Here are the No. 1 and No. 2 problems for many on airlines these days: shrunken bathrooms — especially in coach. As more planes get fitted with slim lavatories, more passengers are complaining they don’t fit. Twisting and turning is difficult for some. Washing up in a minuscule sink occasionally ends in splashed clothes.

“Let’s make a deal,” before the chance is gone.

We’ll trade in your peanuts for a bigger john.
