"In case anyone trips over this post again, I have added an addendum summarizing the gist of the thread, which is that the post has no validity. Given the evidence presented, I agree wholeheartedly with this conclusion. "

"This doesn't read anything like Readers' Digest. Saw there was a comment here this morning. Wish you were still posting, and I have to say I was touched to find Arthur's comment, which I never knew existed. "

Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

I don't mean to scare you guys, but have you been following the news on North Korea?

Posted on April 13, 2017 at 6:08am 24 Comments

China stopped importing North Korean coal last week. That represents a major chunk of North Korea's exports.



China now has 150,000 troops on the… Continue

Tonight's Survivor

Posted on April 12, 2017 at 10:41pm 16 Comments

I was watching Tv with my wife this evening. she watches Survivor and I often watch with her. I don't normally write about television but this was different.



I'll assume most people are familiar with the show. Each episode ends with something called Tribal Council where a member of a tribe is voted off the main contest in the show. There was a guy by the name of Jeff Varner at the bottom of the heap who knew he'd probably be voted off and he was doing what he could to stay on. A… Continue
