…when the Vice President met the Veep.

It’s never, never, never the woman’s fault. No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. No means no. […] The one regret I have is we call it domestic violence as if it’s a domesticated cat. It is the most vicious form of violence there is, because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. This whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. ‘What were you wearing? What did you say? What did you do to provoke?’ That is never the appropriate question.

In other news, I have a new celebrity boyfriend (sorry, David Tennant, it’s Biden time).

A Vice-Presidential Trip and a Blip in Service

Traffic at noon was at a standstill today, well at least around Norfolk State University. Brambleton Avenue was closed down and HRT had a blip in light rail and bus service in that area. The reason was a good one: Vice President Joe Biden was en route to Norfolk State University for a speaking engagement on the need for cyber security training. NSU is a leader in the field. 

After he arrived, everything seemed to have stopped, except for the flashing police lights and the thump of a Coast Guard chopper overhead. We caught a glimpse of his motorcade, as you can see. After a few minutes, Brambleton reopened—traffic, buses and all of our Tide trains resumed service. Just another day in Norfolk with VP Biden.
