Good Morning, it’s Friday, 9 March 2018  and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.
Surprise! In a major diplomatic breakthrough, North Korea and the United States will meet to discuss easing the tensions between the two countries. Kim Jung Un of North Korea and President Donald Trump of the United States will meet face-to-face if things go as planned. This meeting–if it actually takes place–could greatly reduce the tensions between North Korea, South Korea and the United States. The meeting is a move in the right direction.
The British police have said that a former Russian spy now living in Britain was poisoned, along with his daughter, by the Russians using a very sophisticated form of a nerve agent. The spy–once a double agent for the British–was repatriated to the U.K. in a spy swap with Russian.
Today is National Get Over It Day. You know what to do…..if something’s been bugging you, get over it. It’s also National Day of Unplugging. Also simple to celebrate: just put down that cell phone or iPad and see if you can make it 24 hours without over-indulging in the digital lifestyle.
