A few Irish poets’ work for St. Patrick’s Day.
I love these body language analysis videos. So glad there’s one up on this latest summit.
I didn’t expect this conflict to just take two summits. I do hope one day there is peace between the two countries and that Kim makes the necessary changes to bring freedom and peace to his country and let it be part of the world.
She does say she doesn’t know why the summit would be in Hanoi. I think there was one other Asian country considered and Kim chose Hanoi.
I’ve been there and was surprised by how welcoming the people were to Americans. It seems that for the most part people have taken a “let bygones be bygones” approach to what they call the American War. (Cambodia’s the same. So’s Japan.) I attribute this to Buddhism and I suppose practicality.
As some commentators have said, Vietnam is a communist country, which does forbid religions and has a tight rein on social media, but there’s a lot of commerce. Life is comfortable as commercialism has brought prosperity.
Courageous reporter Lara Logan shares her thoughts on today’s mainstream media.

It’s Presidents’ Day. Can you answer better than these folks?
Until I saw this article in the Japan Times, I didn’t know anything about Japanese soft vinyl toys called sofubi. They’re sought after collectibles and when I went to eBay.com, the good ones cost $80 to $100 or more. according to the Japan Times, some cost up to $1000.
I can see that they’re an art form, but the price is hard to accept.
Some satire on our Higher Education system
I love Emily Graslie’s science videos. She’s the Chief Curiosity Correspondent at the Field Museum in Chicago.
