The Jan. 25 column by Leonard Pitts reminded me again how young we are as a country. The wisdom of Mother Europe pointing out the obvious to those of us who are so gullible, so foolish, as to not see the difference between being entertained and being informed (i.e. Fox News) is hard to acknowledge.
But the deniers among us will hear only what they want to hear. The big problem is, they vote. They will opt for policies against their own selfinterests and put into office those who will take from the average American as much as they can. And like the children they are, they will blame someone else for the mess they created.
