I have become increasingly concerned about what is happening to our world. I don't know what to do about it but I believe it is crucial that information be disseminated. These are momentous times for which the necessity to stay informed is ever greater. I plan to post notes about recent publications on this site that help me think about what is going on. And I would welcome your comments.
Again, as Benazir arrives in Karachi, folks are pouring their own imaginative hopes into a heroic figure."She will bring employment, she will restore democracy, and she will bring peace," . . . "We are proud to have a woman as a leader. Our children's future in her hands. She is our mother."Such is the prediction of a wishful imagination. What will they do when -- not if -- she fails to deliver? Who will be blamed?
