Today's Weekend Reader


A little change for this week.

We usually present a mix of global news, with a small collection of world opinion.

But this week, with world opinion brought to a boil by the actions and statements (particularly the tweets)

of the Trump Administration, we've tilted the mix a bit toward opinion. Feel free to use the

"Feedback" email to send us your own.

Thanks.
