To the Editor:
Now that the July 4th hoopla has quieted, two questions should be asked of the American public.
First: Who was the winner of the most recent “America’s Got Talent” show?
Second: How many countries is the U.S. currently bombing?
Most Americans can readily answer the first question, but I suspect few can answer the second. Why?
The Roman government distracted its citizens with “bread and circuses;” we have our own version of “bread and circuses.”
Jefferson said: “Information is the currency of Democracy.”
If he was correct, we are bankrupt.
