U.S. Moves Six Fighter Jets to Baltics, More Airmen to Poland »

So much for not ratcheting up tensions, I guess…
Russia firing off ICBMs.. The United States reestablishing its Cold War footing.
Secretary of Defense Hagel also said supplying additional arms to Ukraine would be a joint NATO or presidential decision.
But another bit of Russia related news making big news is the news business itself. The LA TIMES reports it this way:
An American journalist said she was quitting a Russian-backed TV station in an on-air protest Wednesday, telling viewers “I cannot be part of a network funded by the Russian government, that whitewashes the actions of [President Vladimir] Putin.”

Her name is Liz Wahl. I’d imagine she is taking extra precautions since her decision and her video quitting has gone beyond viral ..
No word from RT on the Wahl decision. I am sure Vlad the Impaler will get over it.
Russian President Putin takes part in a news conference at the Novo-Ogaryovo state residence outside Moscow



STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…
