"By now, it should be clear to all objective observers that Russian President Vladimir Putin is not impressed by starkly worded statements and declarations, and if that is the only outcome in Wales, it could represent a historic failure of the alliance at a time when NATO’s foundational purpose has renewed relevance." Exactly.

Enjoy a Happy Caturday with “Henri 2, Paw de Deux” (by Will Braden).

Roger Ebert actually declared this to be “the best internet cat video ever made.” For real! [https://twitter.com/ebertchicago/status/241709223610810368]

The series of short films even has its own Wikipedia entry. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri,_le_Chat_Noir]  If only I could enjoy them. ;-)
