A wide-cast net of recent reads on love, liberty, and shelter . . .
This is Why Duels Existed, Jeffrey Tucker, FEE . . . The playground insults and barbed threats bandied between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un would be just another ridiculous celebrity spat . . . if these two men weren’t heads of state with unprecedentedly immense nuclear war power.
