Today’s title is but a single word. That is because I feel it succinctly sums up the current situation.
There is no need to make things up (unless you are a present day Republican trying to justify your position) because the truth gives you more material than you can possibly cover in five op-eds a week. If you haven’t figured it out by now today’s article is another catch up attempt.
A lot is going on. Much more than I can ever cover. Today’s is another of my attempts to catch up. As if there weren’t enough material, I’ll even start a rumor and debunk it.
Today’s article is relatively short. Do not mistake its brevity for proof of lack of importance. It is as much proof of a theory as an observation. While it is based on the situation in Ukraine it has much wider implications and sadly, applications. I hesitate to write of Ukraine, especially in an article whose publication date is uncertain at the time of its writing, but the message is too important for me to remain silent any longer.
Often a dilemma I face when writing the Sunday article is to decide which story I will select as the biggest of the week just ended. No such problem this week! However, (and it always seems there is a forever), today’s dilemma is that the situation is so dynamic that anything I wrote about the “status” would be outdated by the time you read it. With that in mind I’m taking a different slant on the Ukraine story which in my opinion is even more important.
