    Trump cuts aid to three Mexican countries

    Very true. Few Amerikuns distinguish between Latin American countries. They see it all as a big drug cartel. In a review of a book by Barbara Bush (her autobiography? Not sure) the story of the visit of former President Menem to the White House is mentioned. The chef had prepared a cake on...

    Bus drivers -- complaints and recognition

    Insane Dog Barking

    Pendsador, from your photo it seems you are probably physically big so your neighbor may have worried that you'd beat him up! You're right about the noise problem. People even speak in very loud voices. I think a lot of people here like noise. They find quiet a problem. It amazes me how...
