Little Rock to New Orleans in 94 Minutes

The new GLO Airlines is flying nonstop from Little Rock to New Orleans in just 94 minutes nonstop. On a recent flight ($338 round trip,) it took us almost as long to get to the French Quarter on the van shuttle as it did to get from Little Rock to New Orleans. We’ve done our last eight hour drive or eternal layover in Dallas. There is a "New Years Even in New Orleans" rate of $308.

Fake news

So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state. /more/
