Missive #216


Nasruddin’s neighbor came running up, shouting loudly. “There’s been a terrible accident!” he said to Nasruddin.

“What happened?” asked Nasruddin, alarmed.

“Your ox got loose and gored my cow to death,” the neighbor explained. “Someone will have to pay!”

“What do you mean?” replied Nasruddin. “Surely you can’t hold me responsible for what my ox did to your cow.”

“Oh,” said the neighbor, “I apologize. I must have gotten my words mixed up! I meant to say that my ox got loose and gored your cow to death.”

“Oh!” said Nasruddin. “That changes everything. Someone really will have to pay!”

[T]oday we propose to discuss NATO in the aftermath of its recently concluded Vilnius Summit, exploring a variety of questions about how its assault on Russia is faring and the prospects of extending its sphere of operations to what NATO leaders like to call the Indo-Pacific. And in order to do this, on today’s show, we are joined by none other than Pepe Escobar. — NATO Moves To Bait China by Michael Hudson

I have wasted a lot of time these past few days trying to get an app on the Samsung tablet that works somewhat like Garmin Connect. The Samsung tablet is VERY choosy in what apps it will support. So far I have not been able to install what I think will work; should get the new watch in a few days and then may have a better idea of what I can do.
