A Meandering Post for a Wednesday

Afghanistan is maybe having some successes. The economy might be rebounding. Right? Iran is still doing its thing, maybe… and so is probably North Korea. Not much notable news has seemed to have been created lately, maybe. Poverty is still a problem in Africa. India is still a democracy. China still violates some basic human rights, perhaps. Drugs are still illegal. The world keeps rotating and moving around the sun. Kepler is out there looking for exoplanets. The Internet keeps expanding. Smart phone market penetration is probably increasing. Is humanity on the right track, right? What needs to change? What should be done? How are things?
