stranded

Vladimir Putin’s fatal error was assuming everyone in the United States was as weak, venal, oafish, and self-aggrandizing as Donald Trump, when in reality no more than half of us are. Of course, if you’d spent more time around Trump and Steven Seagal than with almost any other American, you’d...

… and, winter is coming. China, already in a significant energy crunch, has been experiencing energy shortages due to extreme weather, a surge in demand, and a fledgling effort to reduce CO2 emissions. It is a triple whammy for the country that produces the second-highest global greenhouse emissions in the...

Not since, Tuco, Blondie, and Angel Eyes formed a triangle, within a circle, has greed, corruption, and self-interest intersected so destructively. Politics in America, for nearly 250 years has boiled down to money, policy, and humanitarianism in that order. Now it is strictly a good, bad, or ugly proposition. In...

The death toll in Italy from the coronavirus has overtaken China's in a stark illustration of how the outbreak has pivoted toward Europe and the United States. “Italy has world's second oldest population, 87% of those killed by COVID-19 are over 70”. Italy’s population is 4% of China’s. There will be waves in this pandemic,...

I have a suggestion.
