I’m not as worldly a man as I should be; but many of you readers will know more about the Pakistan situation than I do; I understand that Musharraf has declared Martial law about a month or so ago; and there are civil problems. Destre reminds me of the Greek word for “civil strife”; and the reforms of Solon, Peisistratos, and Cleisthenes…Archons…Areopagites.
It is sad to hear about Bhutto; this has made a bad situation worse. The Christmas period is normally a time for Christians to think about improving themselves; reminding themselves about the forgiveness that Jesus gave humanity by his death.
Times are difficult in the world; and times will get harder still.
I hope things improve in Pakistan; and international relations wider.
