The election of Donald Trump as president of the United States, is nothing less than astonishing.

I wrote the following this morning and now comes word tonight that Leonard Cohen, one of the greatest writers of our time (poet, novelist, songwriter) has died at the age of 82. “Give me back the Berlin Wall.” Of course, Leonard Cohen, who at the age of 82 has just released one of his greatest and most popular albums, You Want It Darker , didn’t really mean that, a quarter-century ago. He sang in the guise of the unreliable narrator in his classic, and scary, song “The Future.” Other Cohen lyrics from that little ditty, written just after the 1989 fall of the Wall, call for the return of Stalin, more people to torture, and another Hiroshima, among other horrors.

It seems that offensive antics are par for the course for these two “golfers.” Evan Shay and Morgan Ruig, both 28-year-olds from Brisbane, Australia, claim to have passed themselves off as the Australian national team for an international golf tournament in North Korea as a joke. “Initially we just said we were a couple of Australian golfers and they said, ‘You are the Australian team,’ and we sort of didn’t say no,” said Ruig, a real estate agent who told 9News the stunt started when the pair was in Beijing for a polo tournament. The two are now reveling in their feat after returning safely from a country the U.S. sanctioned earlier this year for human rights abuses . The media is largely applauding the men for carrying out an epic “prank ” or dismissing them with a wink as harmless hooligans .
