Libya Has A Chance – Goodbye To Robert Pierpoint

  A couple of thoughts.

According to the CIA World Factbook, Libya, is 82.6% literate, which gives them a pretty good shot at nation-building, particularly when compared to places like Pakistan, which has a largely illiterate society (49.9% literate).  Don’t you wonder why the American “media” almost never makes a connection between a country’s literacy rate and the potential for that same country moving forward?  How do you connect with a population that can neither read nor write?

Also – Robert Pierpoint of CBS News, has died.  RIP
