QOTD: How Much Does It Hurt to Lose a Base Engine?


Hey there B and B, I am going to level with ya a bit. This week has gotten off to a slow start in part because it’s a holiday week and news is slow, in part because I was working on our podcast, and in part because I’ve been working on a long op-ed. So the QOTD is a bit late today.

We’re going to try to get some more normalcy tomorrow and Wednesday, but we’ll be off Thursday and Friday is a work in progress.

But I digress, you came for a QOTD. Today it’s a very simple one, because of the reasons mentioned above.

You know what to do. Sound off below.
