Two News Stories About the USA: Change is Within

What a co-incidence, two today's news stories, one in India and another in America, both talk about the change that has to be within (aka think externally, act internally):

  • US needs to change lifestyle to save planet: India,
    Betwa Sharma, Press Trust Of India,United Nations, September 22, 2009


  • Tom Friedman's Take On "Wimps" and "The Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys" in Huffington Post
    Bottomline from Real Men Tax Ga @ NYTimes.com: "We are hardly a nation of wimps. Sadly, we have a government that is barely functioning. We have a government class too readily looking after its own interests and those of their campaign paymasters, rather than the nation as a whole. This has not always been the case. The American people are and have shown themselves to be capable of extraordinary accomplishments throughout their history. But today, in this world, given the leadership of other societies, much needs be done to change the way we govern ourselves and the way our government functions."
