• North Korea’s dictator Kim Jung Un issued an unprecedented invitation Tuesday asking Pope Francis if he would like to visit North Korea. The invitation was eagerly accepted in Rome. Popes are no different from comedians, they love to go where audiences have never heard their material before.
• UN Ambassador Nikki Haley in her resignation announcement Tuesday maintained she really believes in term limits for Americans employed in public service. It’s an idea that was born in the Middle West. In Illinois, politicians have always been limited to two terms, one in office and one in jail.
• The Hebrew University of Jerusalem posted an alarming study it conducted which found that sperm count among Western men has declined over 52 percent in 40 years. It is declining at a rate of two percent a year. This explains, at last, why the Maury Show has been cut to a half-hour.
• South American politics was jarred when the farright candidate Jair Bolsonaro won the first round of elections for the presidency of Brazil by a huge margin. It’s another beautiful immigration success story. His grandpapa came over to South America on the boat, that is, the U-boat.
