very distracting

Donald Trump has canceled the summit with North Korea, which is consistent with my pessimism that anything meaningful was going to happen (although, for what it's worth, the blog ROK Drop argues that Trump has "flipped the script" on Kim Jong-un, a sentiment that Styx echoes... this may be right, but I plan to wait and see).

You can't un-see it once you've seen it. Uncanny.
