I wandered past a television set today and heard the President of the United States talking about India giving Afghanistan a library.
He said something along the lines of . . "a library. That's nice. I don't know who would use it but that's nice."
It's not the library shown in the picture above but still.
Who would USE it?
I would think that there are some, perhaps quite a few, Afghanis who would love to spend time in a library rather than dodging bullets and car bombs and terrorists of one belief or another.
But then I'm not the president so what do I know?
This evening I was looking back at my blog history again and I ran across this cartoon from early 2009, in the waning days of the second Bush administration.
