Some days the world is so overwhelming in its scope that I cannot envision how rules manage to keep their sanity. (Obviously, many of them don’t.)
We’ve got wonderful, terrible, world-changing events going on every day.
Here are a few of the ones I’ve collected. There’s plenty missing – nothing on the Japan reactors and the plume of debris heading for the states for example. There’s nothing on climate change or the US government shut down. (Blame the Republicans who are new to Congress and don’t realize how this works.) Nothing on Canada’s elections. (Hope that works out.)
But I’m trying to keep my eyes on interesting events and not ignore things as the media is wont to do when a new shiny pops up. It just that I’ve only got two of them.
