Thanks Adam, I'm always glad to have some commentary from folks who know
the source well. I've reserved rather a muddy space in my mind for the
current Brit political situation, I keep hoping today will be the day I
can understand it. Sadly today is, again, not the day.
If you have a suggestion for another international news source, I'm open
to adding it to my list as well. This invitation is open to any reader
of this email as well as Adam.
