You may be wondering why I bring up ancient Roman history. Several reasons,but the main one is the striking similarity to what's happening with the NFL lockout. More people today seem to be concerned with sports than the issues that are actually important to the nation and the world. There was a lot of coverage on the debt ceiling debate,but if they didn't get it worked out in time,almost no one would have noticed. If there was no football,on the other hand,there would be anarchy.
We must, individually and collectively, strive to not lose sight of the truly important things in life, and never stop searching for the truth.
