It was a pleasant change of pace to observe Stage 7 of the Amgen Tour around the Rose Bowl. I suspect none of the riders had the least concern about politics on their mind during their 753-mile journey. I would have relished that state of mind.
There has been no reprieve from Octomom, nor the "stimulus packages," nor the marijuana wars and conflicts across our borders and at home, nor the potential release of 40 percent of our prison population, nor our new Afghanistan incursion policy, nor the bailout for our financial institutions, nor global warming, nor the drought in California or is it just the selective restriction of resources for tax incentives?
Have we totally dismissed rational solutions to our problems or are our leaders simply beholden to the hand that feeds them?
