Where are you travelling now?
Started (writing) chapter 22.

I still want to start Icelandic again, and read the Sagas in the original.

CNN:

“Here are some ways to support Black mental health amid images of racial violence:… And if you haven’t seen those images, here they are…”

A couple of days ago I listen to BBC interview with some crypto-racist idiot who invoked US crime statistics - dominated by blacks. I researched and analysed those statistics quite thoroughly on the ocassion of my Wilmott Magazine article, so I knew they don't suport claims that black people commit more crime, but rather that the legal system is rasist. I posted on Twitter tagging BBC that they should ask experts to discuss such data and described the problems briefly. The twit disappeared on the next day... And we are bashing China?

Stephen Sondheim, who according to the news “reinvented musical theatre,” has died. That’s snobbish critics for you, he almost killed it off! Everyone loved his early “West Side Story,” “Gypsy” and “AFTHOTWTTF.” I suspect he wanted respectability, so after those popular successes he churned out rubbish that only a critic could love.
