sometimes the news is just good
China backing down on a major point with Hong Kong although I doubt that will keep our bright lights from wanting to fight the godless commies. I'm doubting whether that means they're any more conciliatory on trade, though.
And a bust out Brexit looks quite a lot less likely. I suppose there will remain some optimism that BoJo is so clever he'll somehow manage to pull it off, but I'm skeptical. I think his degree of accomplishment will be similar to Trump (see North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, trade deficit, budget deficit, all other legislative initiatives save tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations). He did manage to MAGA up some concentration camps, though, and he'll let you keep your ARs.
