There's an excellent book, I will find it in a bit.

I used to have this, but I sent it back to Burma--

https://www.amazon.com/Nabokovs-Dozen-Vladimir-Nabokov/dp/0140014934

where nobody reads.

I could have sold it for $135.

 But no, I sent it back, when there was still sea mail, $100 for 100 lbs.

I found Nabokov's short stories good, but disorientating, because he meets the women he meets, in Berlin, in somewhere in Europe, in somewhere else, at intervals of years.

At the time I read this, I was still in graduate school at Penn, and still thinking I would return to Burma, which became impossible after 1988.

Now I know Nabokov was very realistic in depicting the exile life.

That's it for now.

MANY LIES, small smattering of truth, in trump-Abe press conference--just happened.

LIES:

"Tariffs are 'spread around'"

They cant be "spread around" as by law apply only to Japanese imports into USA.

LIE:  "Economy has boomed under my admin."

NOT TRUE

LIE:  Farmers are happy

They are not.

Little bit true

first exaggeration--"We have taken in millions and millions of $$ from tariffs"

yes, but US citizens are paying the higher prices.  Countries that don't levy import taxes on goods from Japan unaffected by US tariffs.  Their standard of living as regards imports from Japan stays about the same, assuming other things like their income at individual level, money supply, etc remain the same.

Plain language--buying a sewing machine, batteries etc etc clothes imported from China and Japan will become more expensive for me, but not for a woman say in another country which does not levy tariffs or taxes on Japanese imports.

After a few mins, it became "billions and billions of $$" typical trump, it grows in his bloody mouth.

He said, "out of billions, we pay subsidy to farmers"

but--bottom line, US Citizens/Consumers/taxpayers are paying

see below for farmers.

--

partly true or true.

"Farmers are patriots, they just asked for a level playing field."

He almost said "laying playing field", must have been thinking of travel companion hopey hicks.

His face and skin were very red.

Looks very pressured.

Summary of comments:  "It's not a choice.  Nothing existential abt it,  not a glamor post.  It's the law, she must comply with a subpoena or risk going to jail.  She's true to (trump) brand."

Rick Wilson in last chapter of his book prophesied hopey hicks or hicky hope would be last Mrs T "before his death from massive stroke eating KFC chicken"

--and now she went to Japan with Trumps, photographed at dinner sitting next to Mel.

H Hick was sleeping with a WH staffer, and trump called her to her face "The best piece of ass,"

I'd never heard of it before, before a woman from Egypt wrote something.

So I did my research, and wrote a novella.

Abuse of women exists in different forms. and in this case it is both culturally sanctioned as well as truly horrifying.

No woman or girl should have to go through this.
