Where's Our Foreign Aid?
"Now I'm calling all citizens from all over the world
This is Captain America calling.
I bailed you out when you were down on your knees
So will you catch me now I'm falling?"
So sang The Kinks in 1978. One of my favorites by the Davies brothers of Britain is especially relevant this morning.
In light of the devastation on the US Gulf Coast and considering that we are ALWAYS on the scene providing aid and money when disaster strikes anywhere in the world, I want to know, "Where are you world?""I stood by you through all of your depressions
And I lifted you when you were down.
Now it's your chance to do the same for me,
I call your office and your secretary tells me
That you've gone out of town."
