Hey now,

We had an earthquake since we last chatted. Is it too soon to ask "what's up?"

In a new age of strong-man politics - Trump, Putin, Duterte et al - will it be unusual in the future for a world leader to die at 90? Fidel Castro checked out this week, leaving his cafe empire to the residents of his home city; us.

Trump remains president-elect, and yet the left is the problem apparently. Is "identity politics" alienating navel gazing, certain to ruin our chances with the salt of the earth?  Or is it a target you can move about at will when you're angry about getting owned. If nobody is arguing in good faith, could it actually be many things?

Is fake news a problem? Can the media reform? You'll never guess what the answer is. Take our quiz to find out.
