To the editor:
A normal day in the life of a U.S. citizen hasn’t changed much since the ’80s or ’90s, or even back to the ’50s.

The Middle East is as usual boiling, another assassination in some country, more riots protesting various things around the world, more terrorism and murder, more people in many countries on a near starvation diet. Chaos in many places because of weather, earthquakes or politics, the usual wave of people trying to get into the U.S., the usual bureaucratic stupidity of those we elect to represent us in the halls of Congress, the sense of uncertainty with the geopolitical landscape, and the crisis atmosphere it creates is always with us. The U.S. has our military fighting in some country somewhere in the world, and I see the powers that be in our government are still trying to tell other sovereign nations how to run their own country.

I have been around this old world for a lot of years, am a Korean veteran, and find it interesting how things keep repeating, and how most U.S. citizens assume all people think like we do. They don’t.
