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
It turns out that advancing equal opportunity and economic empowerment is both morally right and good economics, because discrimination, poverty and ignorance restrict growth, while investments in education, infrastructure and scientific and technological research increase it, creating more good jobs and new wealth for all of us.~Bill Clinton
