We are fighting two wars.

And this article is the lead story in this morning's online New York Times. I wish I were joking.

From the NY Times:
"Characters as Reimagined for This Century

The 1980s Strawberry Shortcake has been updated to spend her time on a cellphone instead of brushing her cat. Many classic children’s characters are being freshened up."

This is so sad. And just imagine what anyone from another country must say about Americans and The New York Times (shame on us!). It really makes you wonder what the editors are thinking (or not) while the US has so many real problems going on.

In the print edition, it was the front page of the Business Section. Less grievous but still pretty sad.
