It's been another drama filled, emotionally packed week in the world highlighted by: flood stories of epic proportions, severe weather, Mt Etna erupting, the aftermath of the shooting in Tucson touching the hearts of many Americans, the remarkable recovery of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, (read about her doctors), the economy, and much more that completes the archives of this program's events for one week. Who knows what to believe about the economy as millions are losing their homes, people can't find jobs, as the worst recession in decades continues. Trust no one.
Friday I watched Suze Orman on Oprah. Orman said that 'making it' in today's world, means: being debt free, good credit, having money to last 8 months, and having a job. As to Oprah's guest Nadya Suleman - she is still emotionally out of touch and babbled on about how her mother abused her. It's all inherited mental illness and, among the things Nadya needs for her family is therapy for all. She may think her mother abused her, but what will her children say about her when they grow up? On the bright side, the program will close long before then. As to Sarah Plain, if I never see or hear from her again, it won't be too soon.
Time for a break and a look at the football playoffs. Sunday the Jets play the Patriots in New England in an historic match-up worth watching. I plan to watch and will cheer on the Jets, but it doesn't look promising. Lots of snow in New England, but nothing predicted for Sunday.
A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus
but a molder of consensus.
