Air Travel: The Chinese have got their tails up

Daxing International Airport – Beijing

The Economist – April 6. 2018

ANYONE who doubts the ambitions of China’s airlines need only look over the plans for Daxing International Airport, which will serve

USA: Confederate Monuments are Going Down. Lynching Memorials are Going Up

Confederate Monuments are Going Down. Lynching Memorials are Going Up.

Southern Poverty Law Center

The markers are about the size of a man. The color of bricks made from Alabama’s red clay, they hang from the roof, one for every county in America where a person was lynched.

Why are the Bushes, Clintons, Obamas and Melania smiling so broadly at a funeral?
