Trump's Mind Is Deteriorating, As If We Didn't Know.
Tony Schwartz, the co-author of The Art of the Deal, said on CNN Wednesday he hasn’t seen Trump “more out of touch with reality than he is today.”
Schwartz spoke with Brianna Keilar about Bob Woodward’s book, as well as the Rage author’s takeaway that the president doesn’t seem to know what’s real and what’s unreal.

Attorney General William Barr Says Freedom Outweighs Protecting Americans During A Pandemic
Attorney General William Barr lashed out at governors in both parties who closed nonessential businesses and ordered residents to stay home to stem the spread of coronavirus.
"You know, putting a national lockdown, stay at home orders, is like house arrest. Other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history," he claimed.

The 7 Hour Flight To Nowhere Is Also Known As "Sightseeing"
But as travel bans, closed borders and shelter-in-place orders confined many to our homes, some travelers have been daydreaming not only about the far-flung destinations currently off limits, but the flying experience itself -- from the thrill of the take-off to the unmatched views of the earth from above from the cabin window.
That's where "flights to nowhere" come in -- air travel that takes place purely for the purpose of the journey, not the destination.
Australian airline Qantas recently announced plans for a seven-hour scenic flight that will perform a giant loop taking in Queensland and the Gold Coast, New South Wales and the country's remote outback heartlands.

Time To Deflate Photo
Walking between the rolling clay hills at Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona, you can stumble onto a scene that looks like a lumberjack went mad. But this wasn't the work of an axe or saw. Over 200 million years ago, fallen trees washed into an ancient river system and were buried quickly enough that oxygen was cut off and decay slowed. Minerals, absorbed into the porous wood over thousands of years, crystallized and replaced the organic material forming what we call petrified wood. The crystals are hard and brittle, fracturing easily when subjected to stress. Over time, the still buried petrified trees broke like glass rods -- giving the appearance today of logs cut with a chainsaw. Photo by Jacob Holgerson, National Park Service.
