RWP was born in Manchester, in the north of England, in the late 1950s, so he is very old. He really liked the north of England, which by 1965 was hip and had three TV channels, and where he went to a coed school. His parents, for reasons best known to themselves, then yanked him away, to Belfast and then Dublin, which had one TV channel that started up at 6 pm with the Angelus (Catholic call to prayer). He also had to go to an all boys school, where he realized he really missed girls. This probably let him focus on schoolwork, though, and at age 19, after he had finished college, he set off for America, where he still resides. He has a bachelors degree in biochemistry and a Ph.D. from Harvard in biophysics, and has lived also in Mainz, Germany, Setauket NY, and Richland WA. He currently divides his time between Nebraska, Rosslyn VA, and Florida.

Broken clock

Hate to say it, but Trump's weekend comments, which stunned Europe, were right on. Merkel, apparently out of bleeding-heart leftism most of us didn't suspect she had, has essentially ruined her legacy with her handling of the migrant crisis. And it is vital that continental European countries, especially Germany, spend more of their budget on NATO. You don't have to be a Trumpkin to be irritated by the attitude that if they're invaded by Russia, the US will step in to save their sorry asses. And as for the pathetic response that only European unity will allow them to resist Trump, please! Europe is united only as long as it doesn't cost France any money.

Who knew having an ignorant stupid lying braggart as president could have an up side?
