Yesterday afternoon instead of the usual Wyoming Public Radio "Open Spaces" program, I listened to a special program called "India Rising." Now, I cannot, more than 24 hours later, recall the exact words, but let me paraphrase for you here the words the reporter used that just made me laugh because they were so ridiculous, how could I not? Essentially:
India is a rising nation, economically and democratically, but can a nation rise to a position of world superpower, and leave so many of its citizens behind in poverty and squalor?
What the hell; the US did it.
