Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
sooo the Booman spent what, a week?, reading back-issues of Post and New Yorker magazine online for the inside scoop to NYC's Italian, Russian, and Irish mafioso. Deep.

I bet he loved this piece by ... Jane Mayer ... Christopher Steele, the Man Behind the Trump Dossier ... from this March.

"They're trying to take down the whole intelligence community!"

Steele exclaimed one day to friends. "And they're using me as the battering ram to do it."
Steele was a middle-of-the-road Labour Party supporter, and at the Cambridge Union his allies, known as the Anti-Establishment Faction, were state-schooled, middle-class students. Steele's camp competed against a blue-blooded Establishment Faction and a right-wing Libertarian Faction. His longtime friend, who was part of a like-minded society at Oxford, said, "Almost all of us had come from less posh families, and suffered a bit from the impostor syndrome that made us doubt we belonged there, so we worked many times harder to prove ourselves." He recalled Steele as an "astoundingly diligent" student with "huge integrity," adding, "He just puts the bit in his teeth and charges the hill. He's almost like a cyborg."
I think she's writing ad copy now.

"MI6: Secretly we are just like you."

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
