The Trump Doctrine
James Campion
Spoiler Alert: There Is None

When an unhinged simpleton is commander-in-chief of the most power and richest armed forces on the planet you get the week we just had

Come to my house

Abigail George

Elizabeth Light was like any other girl her age. She felt she needed to understand more of the world around her which is why she moved to Johannesburg in the first place.
Getting Back to Basics with Brassica - Michael Chacko Daniels
