We Americans are happy to be uninformed of conditions throughout the world that  don't effect us directly or have some salacious story or massive death tole. 

We should all be concerned with Russia's aggression into Ukraine.   This is why, if you don't already, you should follow  The Blog Fodder; a blog by a Canadian living in the Ukraine. 

If the link doesn't work here is the web address:

  1. Thanks for the shout out. Writing about the situation here is hard. It is such a wonderful country with such wonderful people. As are Russia, Iran, Turkey, Greece. Power does not corrupt, rather it attracts corrupt people. It was ever thus.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
