I read all that author's books (Ian Anderson, IIRC). Wasp Factory is definitely the best, although he's got one about a lord and lady in a manor in some unnamed war-torn European country that's pretty good.
Rereading Peter Watts' Blindsight and Echopraxia. Brilliant, nihilistic, hard sci-fi. Love it. Book before was Lee Child's Bad Luck and Trouble. Somehow the book was stupider than the title. Think I'm done with the whole Jack Reacher series.

It's much easier for the politicians people to do good work and stimulate economies when it's direct, government-to-government aid.

At least half Cuban, but a ton from Colombia, Venezuela, etc....Not to get all Heraclitus on you, but the party changes with every new registration, every person leaving, and every election. Republicans are winning and the unadvertised part is they are winning with quite a few brown people. Hell, the first Haitian-American Congressman is a Republican woman from Utah.I'm one of them. When you...
He's not an empty suit. He has less experience than you prefer, but I've personally worked with him in the state legislature and he's legit. And the current GOP strategy of appealing to angry old white people is not a successful long-term course.
The only two who polls show beating Clinton are Kasich and Rubio. The best possible thing for the GOP would be to run Rubio.
