19th Party Prep; North Korea's "Rocket Man"; Beijing Fighting Winter Smog; Tibetan Mastiff Oversupply
Good Monday morning from swampy DC...today's issue light on commentary, not feeling I have much to add today and figure sometimes less is more. I am testing another logo idea, honest comments always appreciated. Thanks for reading.
