Oh, gosh. Just what you wanted for an August weekend. Why not just a hurricane or something?
But man up: here is the trailer for a world in disarray.
Scarier still, the trailer for cyber warfare that could wreak havoc with your life — no electricity! no water! — without a single missile launched, or single terrorist within five thousand miles.
Both are 30-minute episodes of HBO’s Vice. (Free trial if not already a subscriber.)
And here is an analysis of Trump’s North Korea missteps. What a nightmare.
My take-away from all this?
Vote for competence and cooperation.
(And for modernized, secure infrastructure — which will require paying taxes, not cutting them.)
In the meantime, savor every minute.
We have electricity . . . as only six of the previous ten thousand generations have had.
We have hot water!
Have a great weekend.
Quote of the Day
Follow a tip from a company's president and you will lose half your money. Get a tip from the chairman and you'll lose all of it.~Bennett Goodspeed (The Tao Jones Averages) quoting a canny Scot.
