BEHIND A RINGED FENCE, DARKLY
Our Man is not a betting man. But if he was, he'd say there's a high chance of war in these parts.
I've got no special intel, just the news coming out of Pyongyang isn't very encouraging, not that there's any surprise there, but it sounds like something has changed on the US side. Perhaps their Nobel Peace Prize winningest coach wants to go out with a 3-pointer? Are the Yanks ratcheting up for war? Why is it everyone thinks the Norks will be the first to strike? Is it me or have the natives been restless ever since the Yanks decided to pivot toward Asia? Why do I keep reading about it all being the fault of the untested new leader in the North, the untested new leader in the South but nothing to do with the untested new Secretary of State in DC? But anyway, what would I know?
Nothing, as usual. So here's a sorry picture of soggy looking cherry blossoms behind a fence around a schoolyard. Happy spring. Yay.
Anyway, here are the weakest links... goodbye. And yes, I'll be as happy as you to get off this war footing, but until sanity prevails, what's a silhouette to do?
