Snow Storms Are Coming

The sun that brief December Day
Rose cheerless over hill of gray
And the light it gave at noon
Was sadder than a waning Moon. {Snow Storms are coming!!!!!!}

The above excerpt was from a poem written by American poet John Greenleaf Whittier – Snow-Bound.

The Most Important News Story of the 21st Century

*Editor’s Note* – I place this and sometimes other stories on this website for the enjoyment of readers in order that they can disseminate as they wish.

What is the most important news story of the 21st century? I think I know what it is and can also tell you that the vast majority of the world’s citizens, our elected leaders, and most in the mainstream media who should be telling us about it, haven’t the slightest clue what it is.

There are many candidates for the title. For example, what is more important than the latest Middle East conflict, more important than Iran and North Korea with ‘the bomb’, more important than the declining influence of the US on the world scene, more newsworthy than the next intractable, deadly virus? What could possibly be more important than the out-of-control US debt, more scary than residual Fukushima radioactive waste. Aside from some unpredictable astronomical event that takes place every few million years or so, what could be more unnerving than the possibility of the next global economic collapse, more treacherous than the Chinese trying to kill the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency, or more important than who the next leaders of the USA, China, and Russia will be?<<<Read the Rest>>>
