Happy Russia Summit Day!
I don't know if there's a whole lot to add at this point as Trump has headed off to meet with Vladimir Putin in secret -- days after the Justice Department has indicted 12 Russian GRU military operatives who were directed by Putin to attack the United States during the 2016 elections, yet with absolutely no expression of outrage from the White House. And a day after Trump said that he believes America's greatest foe globally is not Russia (who has and is attacking us), not North Korea, not Iran, not Isis, but...the European Union.
Instead, to keep collective heads from exploding, I think that it's best to take a step back and let Matt Munro take over with some soothing music to calm the souls. Here he is singing the 1963 title song from the second James Bond movie (with words and music, quite whimsically as it happens, written by none other than Lionel Bart, author of Oliver!) -- From Russia with Love.
Follow the bouncing fascist --
From Russia with Love I fly to you.
Much wiser since my goodbye to you.
I've traveled the world to learn
I must return from Russia with Love.
