Surprised Heinlein is on their list. I would have thought they'd like the neo-fascism of Starship Troopers.

Sunk by a mine not really an accident. Perhaps 'not targeted' on him as a leader?

I missed the part where Trump worked as a journalist in war zones, wrote distinguished history (no ghost writer), volunteered for service at tbe front, and accumulated decades of experience in Parliament and government before getting the top job.

Two more weeks until applications close. If you know anyone with a recent PhD (or nearly finished) who is interested in large scale time series analysis, please let them know.

Unless they "get away with" going all the way ie canning elections. Which is a while off yet, but on the trajectory of some actions.
