In fact, I have sent the article to Tiger Woods and the PGA officials. Maybe they will give this guy some help. Anyone with such a steadfast dream deserves to be helped!

Actually, this is a very good story. Must it always be doom and gloom? Here is a guy whose great love for golf has endured war and exile. He wants golf in Afghanistan. Bravo for him!

Nice irony. Of course, we all know that: "Sometimes startling and revealing news items are buried in the back pages of the news media."

Sorry to get off-topic, but I have to agree with my favorite sociologist on this one:

U.S. corporations today are dominated by a speculative ethos, in which top personnel turnover is constant and buyouts ever on the horizon. This year's bottom line is all that matters to a CEO who may not be in a position to profit from next year's bottom line (not to speak of next decade's bottom line). And the U.S. government is spending all its money on military investment and tax breaks for the very wealthy. There is nothing left over for long-term capitalist investment. The Japanese are instead investing in a "once-in-a-century transformation," according to Kazuhiko Ogawa, general manager of the network strategy section at Nippon Telegraph & Telephone.

The bubble in U.S. stocks may possibly continue for a little while longer. But in a decade, the United States may be embarrassingly far behind the Japanese (and the South Koreans, and even the French) in informatics, which everyone is always saying is one of the key sectors of today's capitalist economy.
