And so "cutting edge," too. Why, it's as if we all took a hot tub time machine and ended up in 1985.
As a bonus--this "brilliant" Obama quote, part of his "exclusive Q & A" with Bono, appears under the duo's photos on the front page:
Our collective challenge is to pro-actively shape the world we want to see in the future - by seeking, very deliberately, to accelerate development. The return on this investment is potentially enormous.Pretty profound, huh? But, as usual, totally off the mark since, due to Obama's super-profligate spending habits, the U.S. does not possess the financial wherewithal to "accelerate development." Heck, it can't even fund ObamaCare and Cap and Trade and the rest of Obama's "pro-active" transformational programs. Also, there's a little matter of the global jihad and how it's endeavoring to pro-actively shape the world. But you won't see any "guest editors" tackling that issue at the Globe's behest anytime soon: Unlike the "sexy" Africa angle (with guest appearances by Barack Obama!, Ban Ki-Moon! Carla Bruni!, Christy Turlington!, Stephen Lewis!, Kofi Annan!, among others) there's no va-va-voom in holy war.
