    Superb post btw: there was a recent post re: impact to tires from shelling with metal remnants all over the road. Id suspect that is impacting Russia too with less tires in reserve. Trent Telenko: btw2: good post perhaps highlighting impact of new USA artillery...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    More for Putin and/or his future replacement to consider. His invasion has been a wake up call for Europe. Nato pledged to increase forces available on high alert to more than 300,000 troops – a more than sevenfold rise.

    Memorial Day announcements should drive home the point that evil needs to be stopped. Thus, Biden was wrong to announce that today….makes him look even weaker than he is on the world stage.

    So much for Biden giving Ukraine a key resource (MLRS) for the war against Ru: U.S. will not send Ukraine rocket systems that can reach Russia, says Biden Of course, given his mental acuity, he could forget tomorrow and say he will send them.

    Agree busy location but I sure wish Tesla had built there too (versus the airport). Over the last 6 years, we always stop at the Panera Bread in our NC to FL trips at least 4x per year. Interesting to hear that Rivian has started their buildout with locations similar to Tesla.
