Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Be upright in thy whole life; be content in all its changes; so shalt thou make thy profit out of all occurrences; so shall everything that happeneth unto thee be the source of praise.
- Akhenaton?, Egyptian King and Monotheist (c. B.C. 1375)

What magic wand do you have?

Obama mocking candidate Trump’s promise to bring manufacturing jobs back to America:
