What can you say about an urbane, epicurean super spy for Queen and Country who became a geek? That he liked digitization? That he went liberal? In an alarming development for Bond devotees everywhere, the digital colosssi Apple and Amazon are reportedly seeking rights to the 007 franchise. The implications of
August 28 marked the 1587th anniversary of the death of Augustine of Hippo in A.D. 430. One thousand, five hundred and eighty-seven years is a long time, and, more significantly, seems long when viewed in the light of our own insistent and demanding present, dominated by a constant inundation of
Washington Meet President Donald Trump’s new best friends. He calls them “Chuck and Nancy,” not Senate Minority Leader Schumer or House Minority Leader Pelosi.
