On Earth-2, Kevin and Marian are at LAX preparing to board a 787 for a vacation to Paris. Our first long vacation since Ireland in 2017! And it would be Marian’s first time in Paris, sort of, since her only other trip was 25 years ago and wasn’t that great.

Sadly, here on Earth Prime there is no vacation in sight. Instead, we are sitting at home waiting for Air France to refund our tickets. They haven’t done it yet thanks to the “huge volume of refund requests” or some other lame excuse, but I’m sure they’ll pony up soon enough.

Tonight we shall dine on steak frites and sing La Marseillaise. Yippee.

NOTE: The first idiot to note that this a “first world problem” or that I should stop whining because lots of people can’t afford to go to Paris in the first place will be banned for life both here and throughout the entire internet. Don’t bait me. I have the power to make this happen.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and billionaire owners wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2021 demands.
