TALK TIME: I am speaking, she said. But is anyone listening?

I am not a fan of Kamala Harris, but even her most ardent admirer agrees that her debate with Mike Pence was a damp squib, when it should have sparkled and sizzled.

Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman Ride Into the Future on Electric Harleys in ‘Long Way Up’

The Hollywood stars/motorcycle enthusiasts start their epic journey fittingly at the “end of the world” (where we also find ourselves in 2020), or rather Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world.

The closest comparison is probably Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, a 2017 game in the Uncharted series that followed a new set of characters without overhauling the underlying mechanics of the previous game.
