News Headline: “Trump responds to Mitt Romney’s criticism: ‘I won big, and he didn’t.’ ”
Mitt Romney won 47.2 percent of the popular vote in 2012.
Donald Trump won 46.1 percent of the popular vote in 2016.
Add winning big to the list of things that aren’t what they used to be.
The latest figures are in.
We discovered 72 asteroids in 2018 as they passed between Earth and the moon.

Which means we managed to dodge 18 more undiscovered asteroids in 2018 than in 2017.
So we’re getting safer and safer.
