Day 27

There are two old sayings that I like to kind of combine. "Keep our enemies close and your friends closer." The second is "Act Locally but think Globally." Today I encourage you to give locally and worry about what the rest of the world is doing.

I watched the news and they are talking about the stability in the Arab world. There are many protests in Egypt and so far most of it is against the old leaders that have had a firm hand and kept things in check for many years. Will the changes result in more Government based on the Muslim religion or not? I wondered if it took someone as brutal as Saddam to control his country. Will they ever achieve stability until they elect or appoint, or accept a strong man as their leader?

If there is any good news out there, Korea is again on the path to some stability. Wonder if China is worried about being sucked into another war there. I don't think it would make much sense for the US and China to be so involved in trade and finance and be in a fighting war.

Warm day today so there should be some good snow melt. A lot will be gone in time for new snow on Sunday or Monday. We'll see.
