Yes, Trump wanted to buy Greenland
(I really wish I was making that up)
By Julie Carter
At this point, it must be a universal truth that
President Trump says and does things that are,
for lack of a better term, weird. This is a serious
understatement, but I beg you to bear with me.
I am just as tired of dealing with the man as
In one of the latest weird moves made by the
president, it was reported that he wanted to buy
Greenland. Yes, you read that correctly.
Following the breaking of this news. President
Trump confirmed that he was “interested” in the
idea of acquiring Greenland. The ever-vague
man Donald Trump is didn’t really offer much
insight into why exactly he wanted to do this,
just stating that he found it “interesting.”
In sharing that he would be willing to discuss
the purchase of Greenland with Denmark,
Trump sent much of the latter country into a
frenzy. “Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is
not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland. I
strongly hope that this is not meant seriously,”
The Danish Prime Minister said.
In a typical childlike response from the
president, his upcoming trip to Denmark was
cancelled, and he referred to the Prime Minister
So, what is going on? Your guess is just as
good as mine.
If anyone has insight into this, I would
greatly appreciate being filled in because I
am hopelessly confused. I don’t understand.
Frankly, I don’t know if I want to understand.
I can think of an infinite list of things that
are more important than the fact that this guy
wanted to buy Greenland: the Amazon burning,
the Flong Kong protests, literally anything else.
Is everyone else sick of having to deal with
this utter buffoonery? I am so sick and tired of
reading ridiculous headlines about something
Donald Trump did or said. I want a president,
not a petulant child.

'Kitchen Confidentiar review
By Mary Lewe
Editor in Chief
“If there was any justice in this world, I would have been a dead man at least two times over,”
the late Anthony Bourdain wrote in his New York Times bestselling book “Kitchen Confidential:
Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly.”
Bourdain’s suicide in June 2018 shook not only the culinary world, but the huge fanbase Bourdain
developed through his work around the globe on such television shows as The Travel Channel’s
“No Reservations” and CNN’s “Parts Unknown.” His death became part of an ongoing conversation
around mental health, particularly in the service industry.
To get a glimpse into Bourdain’s internal darkness, one can turn through the pages of his now
prolific book, “Kitchen Confidential.” As a college student who has worked in kitchens for years, I’ve
been told to read this book countless times, but I never expected to yearn for the days of withered
hands from dishwashing and the innumerable bums, cuts, scrapes and ego bmises that are inevitable
when handling hot grease and hot-tempered coworkers and customers.
Despite Bourdain’s warnings, this book will leave you ready to submit your resume for a job in
You may find yourself longing for a trip to the south of France or the city streets of Tokyo. “This...
this was excitement, romance adventure — and there was so
much more of it,” Bourdain wrote about his first trip to Japan.
Bourdain’s masterful storytelling, ripe with gory details, will
transport you just within reach of these experiences.
If nothing else, you will find yourself gripped by
Bourdain’s personal journey. Peppered (pun intended)
with just the right amount of grime and crime, “Kitchen
Confidential” pulls back the curtain that separates kitchen
workers from, well, normal people.
Bourdain described his book as, “the boiled-down wisdom
of 25 years of doing right and doing wrong in the restaurant
industry.” In reality, it is also a few chapters from the story
of a man who sought to bring people together over delicious
meals and across borders.
“Kitchen Confidential” is sure to pique your interest in
food, travel and the life of Anthony Bourdain. Bourdain’s
final tip to the aspiring chef will also prove helpful in reading
“Have a sense of humor about things. You’ll need it.”
