Right on Walter.
Most people aren't old enough to have a clue about what you are doing, nor informed enough to know that Myanmar exists, let alone know what is happening in Myanmar ( hint to the befuddled...formerly Burma)

Oh, pu-leeze. Logical & Painfully ironic, where do you get off thinking that you're so clever and well-informed and the rest of us are too dumb to get the meaning? You do watch the news, don't you? Do you think the rest of us don't? Logical, I wouldn't be bragging if it took you a minute....

Well, I didn't think anyone would give this one a try. 182 people have viewed this topic, and from that only 2 think they "got it". I'm not going to make the decision on a winner, Walter said he would.
In my earlier post I said: "Older people have an advantage in "getting" all of it. I would be interested to have someone under 45 explain it."
So, Walter could you have age as a factor in your judgement.
Whoever Walter says is the winner will get a $15 Starbucks card. We'll figure out logistics after the judgement.

I'm sorry, you are correct. I just looked at the numbers again and counted everyone who responded so far. Including myself, 6 people have expressed an understanding for Walter's posting. Total viewers so far are 225, so 6/225 = 97% of viewers didn't "get it"..... Well at least Palo Altans are improving!
Glad to hear you are a student of history, wish more people were.
