Flirting with nuclear disaster: a play excerpt

This is me NOT at Hiroshima. A recent Clown setup, taken by Owen Long. I have come to the realization over the past few weeks that the Masters of War are flirting with mushroom clouds again.

Fake news and confessions of a sucker

Last week, I wrote (based on numerous overlapping news reports) that Trump was set to fire Mueller on December 22. The event of 12/22 was the signing of the Tax ‘reform’ bill.

The Cassandra problem
