13 November 2013. A Picture IS Worth a Thousand Words… The More Things Change…

00 Veterans Day 1988 in Pennsylvania. 13.11.13

_______________________________

The above image is from 1988 Pennsylvania… a quarter-century ago. Yet, things haven’t changed much in po-nashemu land. People are still patriotic… they’re still family-oriented… they’re still faithful. Things are still much the same (despite all the superficial ferment)… in a good way. In particular, the po-nashemu people aren’t busybodies or self-advertisers. They don’t try to convert you… but they’ll be the first one at your backdoor if they find out you’re in a jam. They sure don’t make noise… but they sure do make good sense!

You can follow loud nonentities like Rod Dreher or Terrence Mattingly… or you can follow the good people in the picture. I’ll confide that I’m not alone in preferring the latter…

The World Taekwondo Federation awarded President Vladimir Putin an honorary 9th-dan black belt in the traditional Korean martial art taekwondo. Only great masters can wear a 9th-dan belt.  Sergei Yolkin gives us a fresh POV on it all.
