Before we’re out of time…

Good morning, Netizens...

You have approximately 29 minutes, during which time you can tell your wife and children how very much you love them. You have 29 minutes to sit down over English tea with your next-door neighbor and make amends for all the times you treated them poorly over their bulldog that is ugly and barks in the middle of the afternoon when you are trying to take a nap. You have approximately 29 minutes, which seems like a piddling amount of time, given the amount of time you spend reading the news, fiddling with your online music collection and reading the Blogs online. You have approximately 29 minutes to tell everyone you appreciate everything they do to make our world better.

Then we throw the dice, or so this morning's David Horsey cartoon has it. North Korea has nuclear capability and now the means, or nearly so it seems, to launch a nuclear-tipped rocket against anyone they desire. Then we have 29 minutes, just in case he decides to launch against the United States West Coast.

Iran has the missiles to deliver a nuclear payload, and this morning it was revealed that several New York Banks unwittingly were involved in a plot to sell atomic bomb-making materials. If that plot had succeeded, they would have less than fifteen minutes before Jerusalem was hit.

It is time we stop the proliferation of nuclear weapons before we run out of time.
