nattering pettifoggery and raw linksmanship

Every Musician’s Nightmare: a year lost to tendinitis. Also, MSNBC can’t spell “tendinitis”. Oh, I guess that’s an alternate spelling. NOT WHEN I WAS DOING MEDICAL EDITING, IT WASN’T!

Honda made a business jet and claim it’s 40% more efficient than others in its class.
