  •  Brooke: What if we made two short stories (0+ / 0-)

    required reading for all elected officials?

    "The War Prayer" by Mark Twain.

    Then, your comment reminded me of "The Masque of the Red Death" by Edgar Allen Poe.  For those who don't know this story, a bunch of wealthy people fled the pandemic of the "red death," some sort of infectious disease, and had a costume party going on.  Someone shows up wearing a costume that showed the symptoms of the "red death"--but it wasn't a costume, and the partiers died.

    This should be a sobering thought to those in the gated communities.

    To say my fate is not tied to your fate is like saying, "Your end of the boat is sinking."--Hugh Downs
