    Driving into DCTuesday morning January 5, 2021 I was struck by a couple things as I drove into the DC Metro Area: 1. The wealth, and 2. Residents dutifully wearing masks and staying 6 feet apart.After a brief stop at George Washington’s Mount Vernon, I noticed how our founding forefather’s estate seemed modest in comparison to many suburban DC homes. Regarding masks, everyone in DC proper seemed to be wearing masks and keeping their 6 foot distance like obedient subjects of a dictitorial King…that is, until a millon or so Trump supporters arrived.Who were these Trump supporters? Most of them...

    House Democrats on Friday discussed moving forward with efforts to impeach President Donald Trump a second time, circulating the draft of a single article citing "incitement of insurrection" that they could introduce as early as Monday and hold a full House vote on as early as the middle of next week. The article charges Trump with "willfully inciting violence against the government of the United States" with his comments at the rally outside the White House that it says "encouraged—and foreseeably resulted in—imminent lawless action at the Capitol." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a lengthy conference call with her caucus...

    Antarctica wasn’t quite a region of ice for most of the year. It is widely believed that millions of years ago, when the planet earth was already a massive landmass called Gondwana, trees flourished near the South Pole. Now, newfound, intricate fossils of some of these trees are revealing how the plants thrived — and what forests might look like as they march northward in today’s warming world.

    Hong Kong (CNN)In a brightly lit restaurant in downtown Hong Kong, the meaty smell of fried spam fills the air. As other staff prepare for the lunchtime rush, a cook is putting the finishing touches to a bowl of instant noodles, egg and spam, a dish so popular and iconic of local cuisine that it has its own shorthand in Cantonese (chaan daan mihn). But this bowl is different: despite being topped with two pink slabs of luncheon meat, it doesn't actually contain any animal products. The "spam" is vegan, a meat-free alternative developed by OmniFoods, a Hong Kong-based food...

    Some of my past Christmases have gone spectacularly wrong, from the festive point of view. In 1989, I spent Christmas Eve courageously hiding under my bed in a Bucharest hotel, as tracer bullets whizzed by my window... Stealing a devastating line from C.S. Lewis's The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, I called Romania 'the real life country where it was always winter but never Christmas'. I knew how the story ended, with the triumphant return of Christmas, and I was pretty sure that Romania was going to be a lot better than it had been, once the shooting stopped....

    “Spam is the ultimate loner food,” said the chef Esther Choi, who lives in a one-bedroom by herself in New York City. Working late hours to keep the lights on at all of her restaurants, Ms. Yoo and two Mŏkbar locations (with one more on the way), Choi doesn’t get to cook meals at home for herself very often. But when she does, she turns to the simple things: fried Spam, eggs, and Hetbahn, a single serving of Korean microwavable rice. “Even though I’m a chef and I can make anything in the world,” she said, “when I’m by myself,...
