Hillary Clinton must be exhausted.
Aside from knowing the inside scoops and hate-filled truths of the world's biggest trouble spots, she is constantly flying to the rescue to cool down dangerous political bonfires, and now this.
Just what she needs: a bee problem.
Yes, it seems Hillary and her travelling escorts were greeted by a swarm of bees as they were exiting Malawi.
By the way, does anyone follow Malawi, or even understand Malawi?
I have a theory that Americans, for the most part, have rarely been exposed to the knowledge and understanding of world affairs.
Therefore, it must be especially ADD-producing to view television news clips of war, people screaming their lungs out in other languages, and violent disasters happening in places we don't know about.
I am not saying it is unimportant to know about the world.
I'm saying that it's not uncommon for Americans to be ignorant of neighborhood happenings just 30 minutes away from home.
We are especially ignorant and unschooled about distant, non-tourist-loving parts of the world.
I often wonder what people are thinking when they see extreme clips of angry mobs of citizens in other countries.
What is this nightly tsunami of the world's hells in headlines doing to our psychology and well-being?
Do we feel we can help to personally heal the horrific events we watch?
Or are we glazing over with helplessness, too overwhelmed and flooded by angry, violent images to feel anything?
Except maybe anger, overwhelm, and fear.
Of course, this is a large matter; not easily solved.
