Re: Donald Nixon

I find Trump’s similarity to Nixon endearing. Both outsiders, both falling under heavy attack by liberals. But I think trump doesn’t deserve it. I find Trump's similarity to Nixon heartening in the sense Trump may someday have to follow suit and resign. I agree, however I think that this "resi...

Re: Mueller Indicts 13 Russian Nationals

I think it's funny, countries knowingly allow foreign spies into the country. I think Trump did the right thing deporting all of those diplomats. He’s been pretty strong on foreign policy. Quick and thoughtful action. He must have some intelligent people on his team.

A half hour later two doppelganger porters loaded my bags, and I was on a bus to the airport. The trip has been much anticipated and much worried abo...

Copenhagen, day 4 Today I went to Helsinore, site of Hamlet. Its primary purpose was to collect taxes from passing ships. If a ship tried to pass then the castle would open fire.
