We hear and read many commentaries about the state of our economy and nation. Many diversions are put in front of us by the government and their noisy little lapdogs, posing as the media. Pop culture and sports qualify as diversions, and not all diversions are bad.
The damage happens when we are so busy with the diversions of daily life and do not take time for educating ourselves to what goes on around us. We may think that something happening in Ukraine may not have a bearing on our daily lives, and ignore it.
