Re: local wildlife.

North America must be prodigious with wildlife Steve. It makes sense here in Canada where they have sensible gun control laws. But given the reputation of the United States for widespread gun ownership (along with the sheer number of trigger-happy morons willing to use them) it is a wonder that the...

Re: Fatty KIm: N Korea no longer needs nukes

Believing Kim Jong Un is like believing Donald trump. You would need to be crazy to do it. Trump: "We are cancelling our meeting with Kim Jong Un due to their extreme hostility" North Korea: "Wait, what?"

Re: Transfiguring snapshot photos to The New Place.

Re: Maduro "wins" re-election in Venezuela

As relevant as Maduro's victory - at a time of deep crisis - is the opposition's incapacity to attract the vote of those who are discontent. There were two opposition candidates, so Venezuelans wanting to show their discontent could have voted for them. Which they didn't. Abstaining - even 55% abst...
