We got a postcard from our friends Susan and Phil, who went to Beijing for the Olympics. Among other comments:
Public trans is the only way to get around -- a bit more modern and easier to use than home. Over and over Phil and I say to ourselves, "We are being lapped." Asia is preparing for the next 100 years -- the U.S. is sleeping.
It's amazing how closely that matches my thoughts when watching the Olympics.
Is America in decline?
