During a tour last week, I gave a “Politics in the Backyard” talk in Stuebenville, Ohio. Prior to the talk, a couple friends of ours, Sadi and Abi Hoyt from Scio, Ohio, played classical harp. It sounded like something, well, right out of Heaven. And to get to Heaven, I said during the talk, it is my belief Americans will have to considerably step up their sacrifice and charitable giving. I noted that, in a recent talk to the UN, Pope Benedict said we must end inequitablility between countries. I then read an excerpt from a New York Times article that said a woman in Haiti was offering her children to strangers — so they didn’t have to starve to death. Meanwhile, many Americans go on buying cars, over-stocking their refrigerators, using air conditioning, going on trips…. Equitable? Hardly. Note: I had to laugh. This week the media has been explaining how Clinton and Obama are posturing to appeal more to middle class voters. Meanwhile in Cleveland, Ohio, I’ve been painting the interior of a house up the street this week. I don’t know, maybe I should be bowling too.
