Thank you, gri, for bringing to my attention that when I first hit the Publish button on this blog, only the first draft of the blog entry gets sent out over G+ and it remains unchanged even after I've edited an entry to add stuff later. My advice to my G+ audience is to bookmark the entries of interest to you and then revisit the blog independently of G+ at a later date. I notice from the blog statistics that some of you are already doing that.
I will now address my critics on G+, who are both liberal and conservative but who think that international matters should be none of our business. I'll wrap up this prolog with a piece of music from 'way back, by Spanky and Our Gang, titled "Give A Damn". Take heed and learn something.
