The good news is that 3 out of 5 (partly anachronistic) regional groups had more candidacies than vacant seats. One of the bad news is that the West (WEOG) was not among them but again gave a bad example. Another piece of bad news is that Venezuela prevailed over Costa Rica

This letter is unreal, unbelievable, beyond imagination. But is a White House correspondent of the New York Times. She writes that the White House has confirmed the letter as genuine. The conclusion to be drawn is obvious

Thoughtful piece on the sub-two-hour marathon-length run by Eliud Kipchoge, providing some context. It also happens that my first Florence marathon in 2008 finished in "almost" the same time, 3:59:40. Only the first number was different

The U.S. convinced the Kurds to destroy ISIS for us, causing massive Kurd casualties. Then we conned the Kurds into dismantling their defenses, promising to protect them. Now Trump invites the Turks into Syria, green lighting them to wipe out the Kurds. Positively sinister.
