Good idea, judging from the following shot of air pollution in Hong Kong.

No reason for including this one. I just think it's really cool.

No news today, so The Economist went with wisdom. An interesting choice.
How Jeb Bush hopes to save his 2016 candidacy https://t.co/OPPo6bneoT— The New York Times (@nytimes) January 2, 2016
Jeb Bush and his supporters still have a pile of money to spend, remnants of $100 million raised when he seemed early last year to be a sure bet. They have an expansive ground operation in New Hampshire. And allies have just begun a new ad campaign in Iowa...
It may be too late: Other campaigns appear to have counted him out altogether. But, in extensive interviews over the past week, aides to Mr. Bush and important allies described a long-shot plan to pull off what seems all but impossible: winning the Republican nomination for president.
Bottom line: avoid embarrassment in Iowa and do well enough in New Hampshire to change the narrative. That requires an extensive get-out-the-vote "ground game". There're some talking points in there about attack ads and Lindsey Graham as well, but getting actual voters to the polls is the only thing that's actually going give Jeb! a push.
I wouldn't put money on his chances.
Hey all - I'm going to start posting gaming stuff that requires more than Twitter's character limit at https://t.co/wE17j9RyCS— Mike Mearls (@mikemearls) January 2, 2016
Mearls's new Facebook page is here. So far he has only posted pictures--he could have totally put those on Twitter--but at least one of them is super-awesome.

How do you follow that? You don't, obviously.
Have a good Saturday.
