Submissions strategies --


Only if you are a writer, and write all the time, and interested in getting published.

If you never write anything, or you only write for radio in Burmese, no point, right?

Also if like Emily Dickensen you write for the drawer.  Or if you've written something already, and gotten it published, and that's yr life's work, that's that.  There are people like that, bc I talked to them about writing another book, and they just shook their heads.

Best piece yet on Al-Baghdadi raid--hydra

https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/abu-bakr-al-baghdadi-death-isis-leader-trump-syria-war-a9173431.html

from Twitter--

The Kurds continued to help the C.I.A. nail Baghdadi even as they scrambled to survive in the wake of Trump's betrayal. A U.S. official told the NYT that Syrian and Iraqi Kurds "provided more intelligence for the raid than any single country." nytimes.com/2019/10/27/us/

Complete transcript of trump announcing al Baghdadi death--



https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/27/us/trump-transcript-isis-al-baghdadi.html

The thing is--

he set it up so Turkey invaded Kurd lands and Kurds were killed and had to flee.

Prisoners (ISIS) and families went free.  Turkey has now invaded former free Kurdistan that existed for 5 years.

US has removed forces protecting Kurds and re-assigned them to Syria oil fields.  They have not been brought home.

Nancy Pelosi  "Is Iraq home?"

This sounds like trump projecting his own fears, besides, everyone should know that these terrorist groups are set up as separate cells, so knocking out leader, whether Bin Ladin or al Baghdadi has little effect.

Trump could not even spell al Qaeda in previous tweets.

Stay tuned.

Plot etc of movie The Joker 2019

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joker_(2019_film)

While Speaker Pelosi was out of town attending her brother's funeral, gop repubs--



stormed SCIF taking in their cell phones illegally and holding things up for 5 1/2 hours.



#ArrestMattGaetz is now trending on Twitter, Zuckerberg was grilled by AOC and Beatty, and trump made more jumbled statements, talking about "wall in Colorado"--abt 20 people stood up and applauded


and then walked back his mistake
, tweeting he made the joke "kiddingly"


I was away from Internet one day, and look what happened.
