Re: Supreme Court is preparing to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows

I don’t get it, if you don’t like abortions then don’t have one. Why does someone else get to choose if someone’s body has to play host to a parasite? Are we to expect that it’s reasonable to force someone to give up their blood to help a dieting person? Weird! Fred Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk...

I imagine the US is about to close it's airspace to Russian Airlines.

It looks as though Qatar 729/730, to and from DFW, briefly went to a 777-300ER and now has returned to the A350-1000. My flight schedule this weekend with Qatar has reflected these changes. A350-1000 to a 777-300ER, back to an A350-1000.

Is Qatar shuffling the fleet around this summer?
