If you are anything more than an occasional browser of this blog, or someone who has come here more than a couple of times, you have probably noticed the bleak amount of posting I’ve been doing lately. Fear not. I am still here. Part of it was that I have been on vacation. It’s summer, after all. Part of it is a lack of things to say about the current situations in the world. What is there to say when you begin to doubt the sincerity of almost all the politicians you see and doubt the intention of any world leader to do anything constructive toward the world’s ills.
I don’t mean to sound manic depressive about it all, it’s just a little overwhelming all the content out there on the old and new media, and I’ve been focusing on more personal things. I’m still paying attention, and you should to. Just because I’m losing faith in Republicans (and had little in Democrats to begin with) and political leaders in general doesn’t mean I’m still not interested in politics. Or foreign events. Or local events.
It’s a good thing that my hope is in an eternal king who has perfect wisdom and compassion. Otherwise I would be pretty depressed.

His name is Norman Borlaug, and he’s the most important person you’ve never heard of. Please read the article.
