At U.N. Conference, Officials Say Spam Can Be Beaten in 2 Years
I’m sorry, but this headline and story defies my tiny level of comprehension. Handling WMDs, the global war on terrorism, AIDS, world hunger in two years, I can understand. But spam?
I was not convinced until I saw the solution. It’s so brilliant, so inspired. A bit obvious, yes, but it takes a visionary to truly “see” the simple beauty and elegance of the solution.
No, it’s not a Spam for Food program.
It’s more legislation, of course. D-oh! It was so clear – why couldn’t I have thought of it?
Earth to UN! Oh, never mind.
I have to admit that I’m beginning to question the logic and priorities of the institutions and governments around the world just a tiny little bit.
