Re: Suicide? Why?

Depression seems to be the signature ailment of our times. I have dabbled a bit in reading the professional lit in suicidology - lots of statistics, little usable facts. My own amateurish notions on the Why of suicide is that some of the suicides (esp the sort - go prove which ones they are - that w...

Re: Poll On Trump Cancelling South Korea / US maneuvers

Trump has been thoroughly pwned by Kim. First, Trump was all salivating for the summit with Kim, with visions of the Nobel Prize bouncing through his head day and night. Then Kim conned him into cancelling the the US-South Korea military exercises. Now Kim evidently wants a re-formulating of the goa...
