Letter to the editor: A cautionary tale

A long time from now a small organism will emerge from the mud on the ocean floor, and millenniums later will teach itself to read a history book found in the rubble. The last two lines will say, “In the year 2022, Putin and his equally mad rivals killed each other in a fit of shortsightedness. And that’s the end of our story.”

You might argue global insanity is not local news … should the fallout be kept out of town.
