State regulators will ultimately choose the landing site, but the Wainscott site would also need the approval from two local town panels. The Montauk site, because it is a state park, would not require any local approval. My mom has thanked me a dozen times for running with her on Sunday, and brought me turkey soup when I couldn’t shake my cold, and baked me a Jewish apple cake, which I love.

But now the president has triggered the media’s shock collar, so everyone is fixated on how he gave William Barr vast new powers to use the intelligence agencies to investigate the investigators. Mr. Parnas and Mr. Fruman, both Soviet-born businessmen from Florida, worked with Mr. Giuliani for months in Ukraine outside normal diplomatic channels to further Mr. Trump’s interests. The men have been subpoenaed to testify before Congress, and Mr. Parnas’s lawyer has said his client will comply to the extent he can without incriminating himself.
