Deaf to the World

Lula da Silva of Brazil made a great speech to the UN General Assembly about what Brazil is doing to eliminate poverty and what the whole world could do if it devoted resources to that instead of, particularly, war. NPR broadcast a few minutes of it, but then nobody said anything about it. Instead the media misdirected its attention to Bush nattering on about his usual sorry themes, beefing about Iran's nuclear program, defending his mess in Iraq, wringing his hands about Darfur as if that miserable situation justifies his disregard for the United Nations. Is it unAmerican to listen to Kofi Annan? We are deaf to the world.
