A friend from America wrote to me today:
"...It's a hot and humid summer here with VERY occasional thundershowers for relief. But there's no relief from the news, which keeps getting worse. I know I'm repeating myself when I say things are getting crazier, but they are. Recent jihad events in Sweden and Hamburg -- all while the media is obsessed with Donald Trump. Egad!
Well, anyway, I hope you're doing all right down there on the beach. May the craziness stay far, far away from you!"

Here is a short extract from an Australian TV program of some years ago of one of the muslim terrorists arrested over the last few days that Andrew Bolt mentions:
