A recent boat breakfast. It may look repulsive, but it tasted wonderful: scrambled eggs with pepperoni. One improvises.

    “2am meeting with President Putin. A candid conversation on #Syria. I also raised concerns about gay rights.”

    What idiot would say shit like that!

    Another development is Nicholas Kristof of the Zionist Times who has switched his ghost writer to Tom Friedman!
