Won't Somebody Please Think of the Children?!!
Tonight I learned, listening to Weekend Edition on National Public Radio, that former presidents Geroge H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton are currently touring Thailand - to visit areas ravaged by last month's Tsunami.
"Both men," we are told "became emotional when given photos showing children being washed away by the tidal waves."
So ... why do I need to know this?
Mind you, there was no other information imparted. Just that the two presidents went to Thailand and choked up (or became quiet and reflective - whatever. I guess we are to use our imaginations) over photos of doomed children. It was reported so succinctly, a matter of such quick course. And I - cynically - wondered ... did they really? Why are you telling me just this?
