Re: POLITICS CORNER

It's fascinating on the latest Americast episode to hear what a Democrat and a Republican politician have to say, as well as getting the inside view on the Supreme Court problem... The death of the US Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is still dominating the conversation in Washington. Jon...
