    Yep, they were supposed to leave on Sunday, and as of Thursday, the guy putting it together hadn't even booked their flight out. Not a great way to plan a trip halfway around the world.

    This could be one of the hinges in history. The Chinese Communist party has been riding a Tiger by the tail. The uncertainties created by Trump’s tariffs are putting pressure on the balance between the growth required by the population and control needed by the leaders to maintain control. It could turn out to be earth shattering.
