Where there's smoke, there's smoke

Click HERE for today's article, which is a book review of "Intermodal Shipping Container Small Steel Buildings."

How much is "some"?

Click HERE for today's column...especially if you've decided to "learn Chinese." Learn Chinese? All of it? That's a lot of Chinese. Ok, then, some of it. That's logical enough, but just how much is "some"?
