Re: PotUS from 2021: Buttigieg, Bernie, Warren, Trump?

Tulsi Gabbard is my first choice, though she doesn’t have a chance. Bernie is my 2nd, and maybe he does. Warren a distant third.

Re: You may already be a winner

The winner has been announced in our house organ, but I won't keep you in suspense: it was Boris Johnson. There is no truth to the rumour that the London mayor was only chosen because I happened to have a clean head of his lying around. A jersey tailored to Mr Johnson's physique was not available at...

Re: Blowin' in the wind

Thanks very much. You both win. There's no shame in the fact that it's by default. Dylan himself would probably be pleased at the way you didn't even stick to the song.
